Did you know that as a consumer in the EU, you will throw away 160 kg of packaging waste this year- and about 19% of it is plastic?

Plastic is definitely one of the most fantastic breakthroughs in history through its flexibility, resistance, low weight and cost, but these qualities are now turning against us through their environmental impact.

If you want to understand what we need to do to start a plastic fantastic revolution in dealing with the consequences of our consumer choices, join my friends at Impact HUB Bucharest for the next Hub Talks, 

Topics to be covered during the event

  • What are the challenges of tackling plastic packaging waste;
  • Where are we failing – and why;
  • How can even small innovation lead to big impact and less waste;
  • How can you contribute your skills and ideas through the Plastic Fantastic Challenge to do more than just lowering your own footprint;
