In June 2019, Plastic Free World Conference & Expo cemented itself in Europe as the most talked-about and best-attended forum focusing on eliminating plastic waste, attracting some of the biggest brands and most respected sustainability professionals globally during its first outing.

This senior executive-level conference and exhibition is now coming to North America – to the Cobb Galleria Centre, Atlanta, Georgia – and similar to its European counterpart will hone in on the exploration of how international businesses from a wide variety of industries can reduce their use of fossil-fuel-based plastics, eliminate single-use plastics, design and create more sustainable bio-sourced products and packaging solutions, introduce more circular business models, and ultimately help contribute to improving the plastic pollution crisis that exists in the USA, Canada and beyond.

Currently, less than 10% of the plastic sold in the USA each year is recycled. Much of it ends up in landfills, some of it is burned, and millions of tons of plastic ends up in the ocean. With plastic production expected to rise by 40% over the next decade. it’s a crisis that isn’t going to go away soon and requires a holistic approach from protagonists up and down the value chain.

We will therefore bring together more than 90 international speakers and over 400 delegates to debate and discuss the latest business models, strategies, materials innovations, future regulations, manufacturing technologies, bio-sourced sourced solutions and the latest and next-generation techniques to help meet future plastic waste targets and create highly sustainable products accepted by rapidly evolving consumer demands.
