Tackling Plastic Head On

November 8, 2018, 11:30 am-12:30 pm

The awareness of and science behind the impact of plastic waste on the environment and human health is growing exponentially. With that comes scrutiny and pressure on the businesses that buy, package, and sell products using this versatile and economical material. Despite the array of interventions at the local, national, and regional levels to stem the flow of plastic waste, it continues to pollute our environment at an unprecedented rate. Can we achieve better oversight of how this multifaceted and multistakeholder issue interplays globally? How do we transform theory into actions and outcomes at scale? Join us to hear how collaborative approaches can accelerate change through shared responsibility, resources, knowledge, and committed action.
