The future of waste

Ever wondered about the life cycle of a plastic bottle? When we dispose of our waste, where exactly is ‘away’? TPB’s Dr Merrin Pearse joins Foodie’s the Future of Waste panel at the Food’s Future Summit 2018 to help uncover the current situation of waste-management and recycling solutions for Hong Kong and beyond.

This panel will be followed by an interactive battle of the straws, where the audience can join the debate on plastic-free alternatives.
