To be hosted on the dedicated Ecopack stage, The Big Plastics Debate will welcome industry experts to discuss the future of plastics and reflect on the pledges made by brands over the last 12 months. Experts from some of the world’s biggest brands, including Marks & Spencer, Pepsi Lipton, together with British Plastics Federation, A Plastic Planet and WRAP, will come together at Packaging Innovations 2019 to discuss plastics in packaging.
The highly anticipated debate will be held from February 27-28, 2019 in Birminham. Day one of the debate will kick off with the Ecopack Challenge, welcoming six companies, who will present their innovative sustainable packaging solutions for the chance to work with Marks & Spencer, and the crown of Ecopack Challenge Winner for 2019. This will be followed by The Big Debate, where two teams will go head to head to debate whether plastic packaging will always play a fundamental part in our everyday lives.
Day two will see expert panels tackle two key areas of the circular economy, ‘Designing Packaging for a Circular Economy’ and the ‘Recruiting Consumers for a Circular Economy’.
