On this episode of Rising Tide we talk with surfers and filmmakers Lewis Arnold and Chris Nelson about their upcoming documentary “The Big Sea”. This startling expose takes a look at the links between the manufacture of neoprene (chloroprene rubber), used in wetsuits and the toxic pollution and high-cancer risks faced by low-income communities adjacent to neoprene’s main manufacturing plant in Louisiana’s “cancer alley”. Learn about the costs – and natural alternatives – to chloroprene in our latest show.
