Education and Outreach

As part of the SPC's education and outreach, it holds several in-person and online meetings and educational events a year. The SPC believes it will require collaboration throughout the supply chain to affect the change needed to realize sustainable packaging. As a result, the SPC continually looks for opportunities to advance its mission through participation in and hosting of conferences and meetings.

 

Coastal Cleanup Follow Up with the Ocean Conservancy



 





Coastal Cleanup Follow Up with the Ocean Conservancy - Webinar

Friday, October 25, 2013

11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


The ocean sustains us with the basic elements of life—it produces half of the oxygen in the air we breathe, and it is an essential part of the water cycle, helping to provide the water we drink. The world’s beaches, the frontier of this essential resource, support ocean health. They provide habitat and nesting grounds for important ocean wildlife like sea turtles and sea birds, and they attract vacationers from around the world, helping to sustain complex coastal economies.

This webinar will serve as a follow up to the Coastal Cleanup that SPC members conducted while in St. Petersburg, Florida. It will include a general discussion about one of the most ubiquitous issues facing our marine environment, ocean trash, the relationship of ocean trash to packaging, and an overview of the successes and impacts of the past week’s Cleanup.
