Plastic – A Wasted Opportunity

It’s versatile, it’s cheap, and it’s incredibly convenient. Yet despite being designed to throw away, plastic simply doesn’t go away.

Every year 280 million tons of plastic is produced globally, yet estimates suggest that only 10% each year is actually recycled. Capturing this waste stream presents a significant and untapped business opportunity, as does the redesign of packaging, and the thought process around waste creation.

The Plasticity Forum presents ideas and opens up discussions on how to harness this material in new ways, both “pre” and “post” consumer use. We address design, materials, innovations, re-use, and waste reduction in the aim of encouraging further innovations within plastic use and powerful collaborations between our community which includes producers, users, recyclers, designers, innovators and entrepreneurs.

THE 3RD ANNUAL PLASTICITY FORUM

The 3rd annual Plasticity Forum was held 24th June, 2014 at the Tribeca Rooftop in New York City. Plasticity offers a gathering of experts as part of one of the most influential dialogues on working in a world of plastic, yet without the waste footprint as a result. We look forward to seeing you at the next event in 2015.

Plasticity Forums

The first Plasticity Forum was held in Rio de Janeiro at the the Rio+20 Earth Summit, and was followed by a highly successful event at the Asia Society in Hong Kong in June, 2013. Plasticity is about bringing together leaders who can learn and collaborate with one another to help scale up some of the great solutions which are now coming to market. The goal is to have a world where plastic is used, but without creating a plastic footprint on our communities. Plasticity Forums showcase sustainable solutions and market opportunities for transforming plastic waste into a valuable resource.
