Creating a Circular Economy for Plastic Packaging (WasteExpo 2022)

June 6, 2022

According to the most recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency data, the U.S. only recycles an estimated 14 percent of plastic packaging. Additionally, a garbage truck of plastic waste enters our oceans every minute. In this session, you’ll hear directly from experts of the U.S. Plastics Pact and peer representatives about how they are moving from strategy to action. They will share success stories illustrating ambitious actions taken to ensure 100 percent of plastic packaging will be reusable, recyclable or compostable. It will take everyone to close the loop; join your colleagues for this important session.
