Unscrunching the Soft Plastics Market Crisis

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Boomerang Labs is excited to run our monthly webinar series in 2023, where we’ll unpack the most pressing topics in the world of circular economy startups and innovation. In March we're joined by Mike Ritchie, Managing Director of MRA Consulting.

We'll hear from Mike on the current state of play in Australia's soft plastics recycling market, including key drivers behind the national recycling pause in late 2022. In this webinar we'll delve into the learnings to take away from this crisis, and explore what actions are needed to not only return to our previous recycling norm, but to avoid similar instability in other problematic waste streams in the future.

Register now and let us know your burning questions on this topic - we'll either weave the answer into our presentations or discuss it during the Q&A.

"We need companies like REDcycle to succeed. We don’t need the media undermining the utility and validity of recycling."

Check out this great article from Mike Ritchie on the recent national pause on soft plastics recycling. We're looking forward to hearing more of his thoughts on this topic in our upcoming webinar!
