Event description

Description

Plastics have revolutionised the way items are packaged and sold, but incorrect disposal has lead to an environmental crisis. This event explores society's current reliance on 'single-use' plastics, asking how we can improve processing of the material and - crucially - how we can move towards more sustainable forms of packaging.

'Single use' plastics are defined as items that are used once before being thrown away or recycled. Food packaging, cosmetics and many other items packaged for the consumer market are reliant on the petroleum-based material.

What are the issues associated with plastics, and why is recycling not always the answer?

Join us for an enlightening discussion about society's obsession with plastic and the race to find more sustainable ways to package our goods.

Speakers to be confirmed.
