Plastic Packaging: How Beauty Brands Need to Step Up to Help Our Planet

Time: 14:00 - 14:30

Date: 2 July 2019

Theatre: Brooks Building

Synopsis

Learn how beauty brands need to step up and look at their packaging to become more sustainable and understand the part to play in reducing the impact our packaging has on the environment. Europe alone uses 25 million tons of plastic annually, and less than 30% gets recycled. With over 72% of UK consumers saying they are interested in buying recycled plastic, we all need to look at how we package our products. If we do nothing then by 2050 it is estimated there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. This talk will outline the options we have to reduce the impact of our packaging on the planet, and how to incorporate them into the product development cycle without damaging brand perception. Learn about the small changes you can make to your packaging designs, which make a real difference to the environment.  See some of the innovation coming from  the packaging suppliers who are also stepping up their focus in this area.
