Earth Day Talk - Opportunities for Change- Date: April 23, 2016. Shanghai, China
On Earth Day, come learn from one of the global experts working on the reduction of plastic pollution in our ocean, waters and communities. Learn about the dynamics of plastic pollution, how it differs from climate change, and why some say it is an even bigger issue. Plastic is used by virtually all of us in our daily lives and companies, and it is a highly useful material. But the complexity of the material makes it hard to re-value in its “after-life”, with the main challenge being its “capture” from the hands of the consumers or users. Learn how “bring-back” programs, mapping tools, measurement programs and the sounds of nature, can make a huge impact in improving this issue. M on the Bund, Shanghai, 4pm - April 23, 2016. Doug Woodring, Founder of Ocean Recovery Alliance will be speaking.
