Webinar – The Moment to Transform Packaging: Impacts, False Solutions and Real Answers
We’re at a crossroads in the packaging crisis. While the pandemic and some industry interests are accelerating the use and dire impacts of disposable packaging, many sustainable packaging solutions are already in place and more are on the way. These include reduction strategies, reusable and refill offerings from companies large and small, public-private partnerships, and the possibility of passing the first extended producer responsibility laws on packaging in the US this year. There are roles for companies, lawmakers, advocates, and individuals in accelerating these real solutions and in preventing false ones from taking hold. Join the webinar to explore the impacts, risks, and opportunities of this moment, and the landscape of solutions that advocates, elected officials, and businesses are adopting and developing. This is part one of a two-part webinar series on the single-use packaging crisis. Part two will dive deeper into the real solutions that are here and ready to scale up, with business leaders and others who are making them happen.
