GETTING A GRIP ON PLASTIC
GETTING A GRIP ON POLLUTION - We need to act now to stop oceans reaching critical mass in terms of toxic plastic. At which point fish will cease to be edible by humans, and marine life could be irreversibly damaged.
Global Research and Innovation in Plastics Sustainability (GRIPS) is a conference, exhibition and showcase held on 16th – 18th March 2021 online. GRIPS is a virtual event for all those involved in the sustainability of polymers, plastics and elastomers.
In relation to the 7Seven Point Plan proposed in March of 2021 by the Cleaner Ocean Foundation's policy advisers, research into alternative methods of packaging and filming is essential for the Seven Articles to work effectively. Hence, the Foundation wholeheartedly supports such intervention by the Knowledge Transfer and UK Circular Plastics Networks. The hope is that supermarkets may have the means to transform their thinking, along with drinks companies and appliance manufacturers.
The GRIPS conference holds the potential to bring together companies and individuals to highlight the best of UK and selected international activities which they hope will lead to plastics being less likely to reach landfill, end up incinerated, or become fugitive in the environment.
The organizers say there are over 1500 (registered) delegates, 40 exhibitors and 160 speakers where delegate may learn about some of the world’s best initiatives and developments,
that we hope will combine with our 7Seven Point Plan and lobbying for changes in the law (if necessary) to seriously
'GET A GRIP' on PLASTIC control.
SOME TOP PRODUCERS OF PLASTICS
PETROLEUM - Without oil we would not have plastic such as we have now in our oceans. Most oil companies now have responsible policies in operation, or are formulating sustainable policies such as to create a circular economy. They need to adapt in the face of climate change and global warming.
