How Can Sustainable Design Principles help Eliminate Single use Plastic Waste in London?
A major challenge for cites and the wider environment is the accumulation of plastic waste, especially single use plastic waste which is inherently difficult to manage in a sustainable manner due to the composite nature of the material finished product and insufficient collection, reprocessing and end of life uses available.
The demand from consumers and producers for cheap, light, durable and versatile materials for packaging in particular but also for use in end products has led to plastic content becoming ubiquitous within urban settings and resource flows, however the value of materials is lost at best to landfill or incineration and at worst to polluting our seashores, rivers and ocean depths.
How can London together with industry and citizens eliminate plastic waste and transition from Waste Management systems to Resource Management Systems using culture, design, organisation and waste stream data?
Come and solve London's Plastic Waste challenges in a vibrant atmosphere, with energising food & drinks, inspirational speakers and like-minded people.
