New Plastics Economy: Circular Materials Challenge

How do we stop thousands and thousands of tonnes of plastics moving into our oceans just about every year? Irrespective of innovation, collaboration and expenditure to clear up squander, the 3 largest clear ups deal with significantly less than .5% of the plastic moving into the ocean each individual year.

We require innovation that tackles the root lead to of ocean plastics, and not just the symptoms. Our $2M Innovation Prize winners display some of the choices to radically rethink the strategies we make, use and reuse plastic packaging.
