Let’s talk about plastics with Poland!
June 08, 2020
“We should not demonize plastic, but we need to use it in a more responsible way”. From top down to bottom up, we see: support and lobby growing, great initiatives being taken, the regulatory framework improving, and of course a lot of challenges ahead of us.
More and more people from public and private sector realize that this can be a commercial- and environmental win. But first and foremost, we need to start doing things. These are our impressions from the webinar “Let’s talk about Plastics”, organized by Innovo/Polish Circular Hotspot on 28 May 2020.
Read the report that was launched during the event: “Plastics in a closed-loop economy” here!
Holland Circular Hotspot Director Freek van Eijk shared together with Philip Ehrhorn from The Great Bubble Barrier and Marius Smit from Plastic Whale expertise and initiatives on Plastics. Economic Counsellor at The Netherlands Embassy in Poland, Sanne Kaasjager, presented Plastic Pact NL and European Plastic Pact.
