Plastics and Packaging … What's Happening Around the Globe and In Your State Capitol
FIAE 2018 Webinar Series:
Thursday, June 28 @ 1 pm EST
Presenters Emily Tipaldo, Director, Packaging, ACC Plastics Division Tim Shestek, Sr. Director, State Affairs, ACC Shari Jackson, Director, Flexible Film Recycling Group, ACC Plastics Division
Plastic packaging is a workhorse. It helps keep the things we rely on fresh, sanitary, clean and in some cases sterile. Often, plastics can provide these benefits using significantly fewer resources and with lower (yes, lower) environmental impacts than alternatives. And, in addition to the upfront contributions to sustainability, the plastics industry recognizes more must be done to increase recycling, recovery and reuse of plastics within a circular economy framework. Plastic packaging faces multiple challenges across the globe – stemming from challenges with marine litter to generating less waste as a society – and the industry is stepping up to the challenges.
Additionally, the Wrap Recycling Action Program (WRAP) has exciting program enhancements, including new resources to better support retailers’ sustainability goals for plastic film packaging. Listen in and learn more about how the plastics industry plans to achieve 100% recycling of all plastic packaging by 2040, and how each of us can be part of the solutions.
