The Final Straw

One day, the final plastic straw will roll off a production line somewhere in the world. It will be one less plastic item in use in our throwaway society. There is now no place left on earth that is not touched by plastic – it’s everywhere.

But that’s because plastic is a wonder product – it has so many practical applications. For example, more and more people are discovering the low maintenance benefits of plastic lawns. But where are these sheets of green plastic going to go once they’ve become faded or torn? Can they be recycled or will bacteria evolve to eat them?

What can we do as individuals in Leeds to reduce plastic use?

Whose responsibility is plastic anyway – the consumer or the manufacturer?

At this event we’ll be discussing Fantastic Plastic – it’s so good we can’t get rid of it.

This event is a must go to if you are wanting to network with other businesses.
