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 and Hugh's War on Plastics focusing the collective conscience on the issues of plastics; the realities and complexities of recycling and waste disposal have been highlighted. For businesses and individuals alike it can feel very confusing and hard to know what to do for the best, so let's dispell the myths and get to grips with the greenwash!

There is much more to waste than just plastics, so join this talk to geek out on waste and where it goes, get an understanding on what recycling really means for many products and materials, including the new inventions including bioplastics and home compostables.

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 businesses and individuals committed to reducing plastics, are confused by recycling and want to make informed decisions to tackle waste in their supply chain. We will even cover some behaviour change tips!

Venue: The Walrus

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.
