What's The Future Of Plastic?

Screen Shot 2017-03-23 at 4.53.45 PMWhat’s the future of plastic? And how can we make an impact on our environment by reducing the impact plastic waste has by finding better solutions for recovery and reuse of these resources?

The Plasticity Forum has started to answer that question with conferences all over the world, from Hong Kong to New York, from Portugal to London. And now the Plasticity Forum is bringing leaders together to learn and collaborate in Dallas, as part of Earth Day Texas 2017, on April 21.

The goal, according to the Plasticity site, is “to have a world where plastic is used, but without creating a plastic footprint on our communities. Plasticity Forums showcase sustainable solutions and market opportunities for transforming plastic waste into a valuable resource.”

It’s time for a global discussion about plastic – and Earth Day Texas is your next great opportunity.

A few of those participating in the forum:

Trish Hyde, CEO, Australian Packaging Covenant
Stuart Clart, Managing Director, FOY Group Ltd.
Larry Black, Senior Advisor Waste Management McDonough Sustainable Innovation Collaboration , McDonough Innovation
Eric Kanter, Managing Director, Morgan Stanley
