IES Webinar: Good plastic, bad plastic?

Over the past few years numerous campaigns have attempted to reduce our reliance on plastic.  Recently attention has moved from supermarket plastic bags to drink straws and bottle manufacturers.  

But has plastic been unfairly demonised? Might bio-derived, biodegradable plastics be kinder to the environment and acceptable to consumers or do these alternatives do more harm than good?

In this webinar, Julie Hill, explored the dilemmas, myths, science and unanswered questions surrounding our use of plastics, drawing on work done by the Green Alliance and WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme). Slides from the webinar can be viewed by clicking on the image below.
