LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR - Plastic Planet

Saturday 16 March: 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Department of Engineering, LT2, Trumpington Street, CB2 1PZ

David Attenborough’s Blue Planet documentaries have highlighted the devastating effect that waste plastic is having on our environment, particularly focusing on the marine environment. Plastic packaging is seen as iconic of our wasteful throwaway society: should it just be banned?

But if we look more closely at the whole system we see that there are other sides to the story: packaging can save huge amounts of resources if used and disposed of wisely. Dr Claire Y Barlow looks at the big picture around the environmental consequences of using of plastics for packaging, and examines the alternatives.
