Packaging Sustainability’s New Paradigm: Perspectives on Plastic Neutrality From 3 Game Changers

You voted for this

Join us to explore Plastic Neutrality, an exciting new concept in packaging sustainability that centres around measuring, reducing, and offsetting brands’ unique plastic footprints. Learn how plastic credits work, why brands find them valuable, and how they can be immediately effective in alleviating our ocean plastic epidemic, today. You will hear from organizations that are already utilizing this system to mobilize tangible plastic impact today: rePurpose Global, a plastic credit platform coordinating and connecting participants, Vita Coco, a growing consumer brand taking action and funding the effort, and Waste Ventures India, the boots on the ground who are utilizing plastic offset financing to create a tangible, quantifiable impact on eliminating plastic waste from nature.

For every attendee who tunes in, rePurpose will sponsor the removal and reuse of 100 plastic pouches otherwise bound for oceans or landfills ♻️
