Friends of the Earth Plastic Packaging Challenge

  • 50 George Square Room G.06 University of Edinburgh, EH8 9JU Edinburgh, United Kingdom (map)

Transition Edinburgh and Friends of the Earth Edinburgh invite you to a workshop on ways to tackle Plastic Pollution
Britain’s supermarkets create more than 800,000 tonnes of plastic packaging waste every year. Do companies need to be challenged to do much more to reduce the bad impact their business practices have on the environment?
Guest speakers on efforts to avoid unnecessary packaging, eliminate non-recyclable packaging and to encourage reuse and switching to other materials. Key question – is it enough?
An opportunity for discussion and planning for action that we can take to cut plastic packaging that contributes to a major environmental emergency
