When experts gather to talk about plastics, it’s more often than not a discussion about problems. But for at least one day in New York, it will be a discussion about possibilities.
The Plasticity Forum is a one-day event examining the future of plastic, innovations in design and materials, all aimed at preventing plastic from becoming a waste product, will be held June 24 at Tribeca Rooftop in New York.
The third annual event moves to the United States for the first time in 2014, after kicking off in Rio de Janeiro at the 2012 Rio+20 Earth Summit, followed by partnering with the Asia Society to bring the event to Hong Kong in June 2013.
A project of the Ocean Recovery Alliance and the Republic of Everyone, the Plasticity Forum aims to bring together leaders to collaborate to help scale up some of the great solutions now coming to market, the organizers say, and to showcase sustainable solutions and market opportunities for transforming plastic waste into a valuable resource.
