Reinventing the Plastic Bottle
This event is the first in a new event series hosted by the Hoffmann Centre for Sustainable Resource Economy at Chatham House. It will explore new designs, technologies, products and practical solutions that could better meet future social and environmental needs.
Do these concerns call for a reinvention of the plastic bottle as we know it?
At this event, a dynamic panel will highlight original ideas, technologies and scalable practical solutions that could disrupt current patterns of plastic bottle use and disposal. Interacting with the panellists, participants will assess different innovative options and explore how best to speed up and scale up their uptake.
Following the panel discussion, designer Sophie Thomas will be exhibiting her latest project at the reception, hand-blown glass sculptures representing the breakdown of plastic in the ocean and ‘Scrimshaw Bottle Tusks’, as well as her collection of plastic waste washed up at Kamilo Beach, Hawaii.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
