Eco Lunch Bunch: Producer Responsibility & Plastic Recycling

Wednesday | July 15, 2020 | 12:30 pm — 1:30 pm

Online Event

Join us to discuss Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and Plastic Recycling! It is clear that plastic pollution is all around us and piling up, but what are we going to do with those plastics? Should the government or producers be responsible for managing plastic waste? In this discussion group, we will go over what Extended Producer Responsibility is and what it means for plastic recycling.

The Eco Lunch Bunch offers sociable, interactive, discussion-based sessions covering various topics. To encourage group participation, sessions will be limited to 10-15 people, so sign up today!

Here’s how it works:

1. Register the discussion

2. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email that includes the digital meeting link and homework assignment materials (readings, videos, podcasts, etc.) to review in preparation for the scheduled discussion

3. The day of our meetup, grab some lunch, join the discussion forum using your registration link, and participate in an engaging, facilitated conversation with your fellow peers. You never know what you might learn when great minds come together!

Once you sign up you will receive a registration confirmation email that includes a homework assignment to be completed prior to the discussion meeting. Please come prepared to discuss the resources shared. Only sign up if you are interested in attending and please let us know if you cannot attend so your spot can be filled by someone else.
