Biodegradable plastics: how do we engage with consumers and society?

Biodegradable plastics: how do we engage with consumers and society?


Webinar: Friday 21st May 2021, starting at 15:00 hours CET (14:00 hours Ireland and UK)

Introduction

Public awareness and concern over plastics pollution, especially in open environments such as oceans, rivers and land, are at an all-time high.  At the same time, the public is often uncertain and confused about what to do with plastic items after use.  The increasing availability of products made from biodegradable plastics is likely to add to the confusion.

The EU aims to transform the way plastics and plastics products are designed, used and recycled. There are actions planned on several fronts – improving plastic recycling, curbing waste and littering, encouraging innovation and promoting global action.  However, for these plans to work, we need effective waste management infrastructures, coupled with strong engagement and cooperation with the public and society in general.
