SEAQUAL INITIATIVE’s ‘glocal’ strategy recognizes the importance of providing local solutions to global markets and to global problems like plastic pollution. SEAQUAL joined this round table discussion to support the The Big Blue Project as part of their program of events to connect stakeholders and raise awareness of environmental issues.
During this edition, SEAQUAL INITIATIVE participated in a round table discussion ‘Creating With or Without Plastic”. Industry members including designers, brands and manufacturers were present to hear from SEAQUAL INITIATIVE, The Carbon Trust and Surfrider Foundation.
SEAQUAL INITITIATIVE’s Michel Chtepa talked of the urgent need to tackle the mismanagement of plastic waste, the long-term goal of finding alternatives to current plastics, the importance of designing-to-recycle, and the need to involve industry at all levels in the quest to clean our oceans.
SEAQUAL INITIATIVE is proud to support regional events such as The Big Blue Project which enable us to voice our commitment to collaborating with industries to initiate collaboration that engages private stakeholders to act “Together for a Clean Ocean”.
