Plastics & Natural Cosmetics: Reuse, renew, recycle, or replace?
Sustainability considerations, reduction in the use of fossil fuels, and the environmental impact of the products we use is becoming ever more important to consumers. Plastic packaging and microplastics use have raised media-attention and consumer awareness, and for cosmetics has led to interventions from both the legislator and industry. What do these changes mean for natural cosmetics, how are we affected and how can natural cosmetics lead the way for the industry at large?
This talk will provide an overview of plastics used in products and packaging focusing on:
- Existing global regulation and necessary considerations for safety and sustainability
- New EU strategies and legislative proposals, industry initiatives and their impacts on the natural sector
- A snapshot at innovative projects and technologies for dealing with plastics as part of the EU circular (bio)economy.
