At the WREN AGM on 25th September 2018, Emily Pollitt gave a presentation on plastics and plastic waste, highlighting the issues of plastic waste, and also the advantages of plastic as a material and the complexities of reducing plastic usage and waste.

The benefits of plastic - persistence, strength, longevity, flexibility and low cost - are also its disadvantages when the plastic has been used and is disposed of.
