Maybe you need a vacation (Rio, anyone?) or possibly you fancy being named a Plastic Pollution Genius…
Either way, Plasticity 2012, A Big Conversation on the Future of Plastic, is looking for you. Plasticity 2012 is “a full one-day conference designed to inspire, excite, and help move the world to follow the innovative leaders who use plastic in new ways, with new solutions, helping to reduce the impact that plastic has on our environment.”
We at Bag It are so excited that the issue of plastic pollution is being taken seriously by such a growing number of scientists, innovators and thinkers worldwide.
Join their ranks. Here’s how:
Opportunity #1: Help invent new ways of capturing huge amounts of PET (polyethylene terephthalate) for re-use.
Opportunity #2: Help generate new ways of putting all of that captured PET to good use once it’s been captured.
For more information, visit the Plasticity Forum.
Need more incentive? Here’s a quote from the New York Times blog: “More than 260 million metric tons of plastic are now produced per year, according to the trade association PlasticsEurope. The majority of that — estimates range up to 85 percent — is not recycled. Most of it ends up in landfill, and a significant amount ends up as litter on land, in rivers and in the oceans.”
So apply your brilliance and brainstorm creative solutions to our nation’s growing plastic habit.
We at Bag It will thank you, as will the:
