Join Ecology Center, policy experts, leaders, and organizers for an informative and encouraging overview of the 2021 plastics policy agenda.

About this event

Despite the many setbacks fueled by the plastics industry during the pandemic to halt forward momentum around reuse and reduction efforts, dozens of groundbreaking plastics policies have pushed through, sparking much hope in real solutions. With plastic production expected to grow 30% in the next five years, strong and comprehensive legislation that focuses on key issues in plastic and recycling industries is critical for historical and urgent shifts.

Join the Ecology Center and a cadre of plastics policy experts, leaders, and organizers for an informative and encouraging overview of the 2021 plastics policy agenda. Learn more about these new and improved bills as we breakdown how they address significant issues impacting the plastic crisis such as extended producer responsibility for packaging, reuse, deposit-return systems, and what’s new in the Break Free From Plastic Pollution Act. Panel discussion will be followed by a live audience Q&A.

OUR FEATURED SPEAKERS:

Kate Bailey, AMBR National Policy Coordinator & EcoCycle Policy Director

Heidi Sanborn, Chair of Cal Recycling Council and Executive Director at the National Stewardship Action Council

Heidi Obermeit, City of Berkeley Recycling Manager

The event will be moderated by the Ecology Center's Executive Director Martin Bourque and will include a live Q&A for the community to join in.

This is a free community event sponsored by the Ecology Center.
