The Plasticity Forum brings its big discussion on the future of plastic sustainability to London, giving the design community a chance to learn how to lead the brands they work for, and products they develop, into a circular economy, where waste becomes a valuable asset. Proudly part of the London Design Festival (LDF), the Plasticity Forum will inspire a segment of industry which is often missing at sustainability related discussions - the design community.


Plastic pollution may be one of the biggest looming challenges of our time, but also one of the exciting opportunities when new design solutions are scaled across industries. France's recent announcement to ban all plastic plates, cups and cutlery by 2020, and the first country to do so, is evidence of the recognition of the ills that plastic pollution creates.

The Plasticity Forum will host its 6th international conference in London on Sept. 21, 2016, as part of the London Design Festival. Held most recently this past spring in Shanghai, the event brings together experts from across the plastics spectrum to discuss innovation and the dynamics of scaling processes, materials and recycling to reduce waste and create value.


The event is positioned as part of the London Design Festival because frequently design community is not at the table regarding sustainability discussions, options and opportunities. They therefore may not realize all of the issues and complexities which are associated with plastic vis-à-vis materials, processes and recycled content which could make big impacts in reducing the waste footprint associated with plastic products.
