We need to talk ……at Resource

The Peoples Design Lab are excited to announce that we’ll be making an appearance at the Resource Event at the Excel centre London on the 5th March between 2 – 3.30pm. We’ll be on hand to support The Rubbish Diet to represent you. In an interactive workshop we’ll be focusing on the public’s voice on packaging. What you find frustrating, ideas you have to improve and bring various other perspectives together (WRAP, Close Loop Recycling, Nampak,…) to work on solutions (very quickly).

Join us there in exploring the plastics and non-recyclable packaging we end-up with in our households and what we and other key stakeholders could do to change this(you’ll need to register for free entry and then put your name down for the workshop on day 3).

You can also share your views in their short questionnaire . Together we’ll be looking at how we can support making improvements in 2015.

From our previous Peoples Design Lab, nominations, redesign cycles and workshops, we know that packaging is still a very hot topic and complicated issue. Despite some areas where packaging has been shown to actually decrease waste (with certain food types) we know that there are still countless items where this is not a justifiable excuse.

Read the blog at The Rubbish Diet for more details, we’d love to see you there!
