Reducing Single-Use Plastic Waste in Greater Philadelphia Panel Discussion

January 25, 2023 3:00pm to 5:00pm

Join SBN and panelists Silvia Lucci of LUHV Food, Nic Esposito of Circular Philadelphia, Logan Welde of the Clean Air Council, and Tim Bennett of Bennett Compost to discuss going plastic-free, using reusable containers, and other aspects of new legislation that will impact our region's local business community.

In this panel, guests will learn about some of the models for avoiding single-use containers that SBN members are already putting into practice, what effect this has on the waste processing system in our region, and how legislation around single-use containers can impact food businesses throughout the region. If you are a business that uses coffee cups, takeout containers, and other disposable utensils, this is a must-attend panel. Guests will also hear about a white paper and draft legislation from Circular Philadelphia and the Clean Air Council around single-use container bans. The panel will be moderated by SBN's Executive Director, Devi Ramkissoon, followed by a Q&A session with the audience. Guests can also expect to network with other local business leaders over refreshments. 

You can also see Circular Philadelphia's flyer that explains a simple and straightforward way to address single-use plastic containers in Philadelphia and how we can limit these items through smart legislation.
