From Here to China: Secrets of Plastic Recycling
Thursday, July 30, 2015
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
2530 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley, CA, 94702
Ecology Center, Berkeley
Why do we send so much of our plastic waste to China for recycling? What actually happens to it once it’s there? Why don’t we handle our own plastic waste? With its “Green Fence” policy, China has become choosier about the plastic waste it accepts, while US residents are creating more plastic waste than ever. We’ll be screening a clip from Wang Jiuliang’s upcoming film “Plastic China” and hosting a panel discussion that pulls the curtain back on our ever-shifting plastics recycling system. Panelists: Moderator – Martin Bourque, Executive Director of the Ecology Center Steve Lautze, CA Association of Recycling Market Development Zones, BIN Patty Moore, President, Moore Recycling Associates Peter Schultz-Allen, Former Zero Waste Commissioner, City of Berkeley This event is part of a series for Plastic-Free July.
