Packaging Innovations and Luxury Packaging London has announced the launch of The Big Plastics Debate 2.0, which will see experts from all corners of the packaging supply chain address the issue of plastic waste.
Run in association with The Foodservice Packaging Association and On Pack Recycling Label, the debate brings together Coca-Cola, M&S, Church & Dwight, A Plastic Planet, WRAP, Veolia, BBIA, The Packaging Federation, OPRL and Prismm Environmental to discuss responsible plastic use, waste management and viable plastic alternatives.
The event will also showcase a plastic free aisle for the first time in the UK through a partnership with A Plastic Planet.
James Drake-Brockman, divisional director of Easyfairs’ Packaging Portfolio, commented: ‘From Blue Planet to the Houses of Parliament, the issue of sustainability within the packaging industry is consistently under the spotlight, with packaging professionals facing increasing pressure to balance practicality and cost efficiency with the need for more eco friendly solutions. It is important to showcase a balanced discussion that addresses this challenge from all angles and allows the packaging industry to make well informed decisions. This debate will do just that.’
The Big Plastics Debate 2.0 will run across both days of the show, which returns to London Olympia on 12 and 13 September, bringing together some of the brightest minds from the sector to tackle the plastic in packaging challenges and misconceptions.
