Initiative inFocus: A Focus on Plastics
Friday, November 16, 2012 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (CST)
Less than 30% of plastics used in bottles and less than 9% of all plastic waste is recycled in the United States. While municipal recycling programs have traditionally focused on bottle recycling, other plastics – including film and rigid plastics – compose the majority of available plastic waste. As communities seek to reduce waste sent to landfills and meet higher diversion targets, there is increased interest in including these additional plastics in recycling programs. Through the presentations and discussion in this webinar, we hope to explore plastics recycling and its future potential from a variety of perspectives.
Registration is free and open to all!

The NorthStar Initiative for Sustainable Enterprise (NiSE), a program at the Institute on the Environment, works with the private sector --both for-profit and non-profit alike -- to understand the systemic sustainability challenges of rapidly expanding production and consumption systems, develop the decision tools necessary to effecively act on these systems, and accelerate innovation beyond marginal greening efforts to more meaningful change.
