‘ED (not quite TED) Talks – Reduce, Reuse, Recyle

5th February @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Do you recyle?

What about actively reducing and reusing plastic products?

THE UK INITIATIVE FOR PLASTIC WASTE REDUCTION has the objective to work towards all plastic packaging being recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2025 with a target of eliminating all avoidable plastic waste by the end of 2042.

Eddie Stableford had a revelation when leaving a street fair a couple of years ago. Seeing waste bins overflowing with food cartons he decided there had to be a better way to deal with the waste and that he wanted to be part of the solution.

Using his knowledge and many years experience of the food industry, Eddie founded Street Food Box Ltd in Feb 2020 and is actively involved in helping the industry change and adopt better habits.

Join us for a fascinating, fact filled presentation as Eddie shares his passion to help us all reduce, reuse and recycle plastic – but especially reuse!

The UK Plastics Pact  is a trailblazing, collaborative initiative that will create a circular economy for plastics bringing together businesses from across the entire plastics value chain with UK governments and NGOs to tackle the scourge of plastic waste.
