This Funzing Experience:
Why is plastic recycling so complicated? Which bin should compostable plastics go in? Is waste to energy a better solution to landfill? Why do some towns have one bin recycling whereas others have multiple bins?

With Blue Plant focusing the collective conscience on the issues of plastics, the realities and complexities of recycling and waste disposal have been highlighted.

In 2018 “single-use” was named the most popular word by the Collins dictionary. And as businesses look for non-plastic alternative, it’s become apparent that the bio and compostable plastics aren’t the ideal solution either as they won’t degrade if they become litter, or in a bin and arent accepted by most composting facilities!

But there is much more to waste than just plastics. Join this talk to geek out on waste, get an understanding on what recycling really means for many products and materials. Understand about the plants and countries where our waste gets processed and how this affects their end of life.

Don’t worry this won’t be a completely depressing talk, because change is afoot. Learn about all the developments and positive solutions and changes that will readdress the materials ending up on our shelves in the first instance. This talk is perfect for those who have committed to reducing plastics, are confused by recycling or want to make informed decisions for their business and product packaging.

Venue: The White Rabbit

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
