The third annual Plasticity Forum has been scheduled for June 24, 2014, in New York City. Organizers of the event say it will present “the latest developments in waste as a resource, scalable innovations in plastic that save money, use of new materials, designing for sustainability and solutions for a world where plastic is used but without the footprint.”
The first two Plasticity forums took place in Rio de Janeiro in 2012 and in Hong Kong in 2013.
Topics at this year’s forum will focus on “innovation and collaboration in a material world,” and “innovations and scalable solutions for plastic, creating a world without the footprint,” according to Doug Woodring of the Ocean Recovery Alliance, one of the organizers and founder of the event.
