Plastic Fuels the Climate Crisis
This panel will bring representatives from impacted communities together to explore the climate implications for the massive buildout of plastic production along the entire supply chain, from wellhead to incinerator, and other impacts related to plastic pollution. The panel will analyze a range of proposed solutions including bans on single-use plastics and refill/reuse systems, and will denounce false solutions such as chemical recycling and waste incineration.
