2023 Organic Confluences: Reducing Plastics Along the Entire Organic Supply Chain
The need was marked at the beginning of the event with a discussion of how plastic moves through the environment and our bodies as it escapes the supply chain at every point of its life cycle from production to end use. The remaining presentations and panels addressed challenges in replacing plastic currently used as important tools in organic and complex solutions including policy changes and consumer engagement. The breakout session allowed the eager audience to take a deep dive into solutions and research priorities which will help guide The Center's future work in this topic area. The Confluences agenda and slide presentations can be found here.
