Join us Thursday, September 28 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT / 5pm UTC for a webinar on Accelerating the solutions to ocean plastic: Trends and lessons from five years of the Marine Plastics Innovation Challenge, presented by Anne Warner, Innovation Program Manager at Think Beyond Plastic.
Think Beyond Plastic is an innovation accelerator advancing the transition toward bio-based, bio-benign alternatives to conventional plastics. Since 2012, the organization has run an annual innovation challenge for new materials, consumer and business products and cloud-based services all reducing plastic pollution, and an affiliated incubator for 10-20 selected startups each year. This year’s Innovation Challenge, the Marine Plastics Innovation Challenge whose deadline for entries is 6 October 2017, is co-managed by UN Environment.
