Designers and Plastics Experts Converge at Plasticity Forum London to Address One of the World’s Biggest Challenges – Plastic Waste

HONG KONG — September 29, 2016 — The Plasticity Forum was held Sept. 21 as part of the London Design Festival to help bring the design community into the big discussion on the future of plastic sustainability. The goal was to give them the tools and know-how to become part of the solution in reducing plastics waste. Designers are one of the missing links to solving some of the complex solutions related to materials, designing for recycling, and societal process flow in terms of resource recovery. Those who know the issues will be better able to drive expansion of the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that the brands and clients they work for should be striving to meet.
