Biomaterials: The future of food packaging and single-use plastics

February 23, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


Lettuce in a bag, plastic wrapped mushrooms, yogurt containers, berries in plastic clamshells. Food production is tied to the use and disposal of single-use plastics, but could biomaterials be a sustainable alternative? How do we, as consumers, discern what is truly compostable from what could end up polluting our soils?

On Thursday, February 23 join experts Love-Ese Chile, the Owner and Managing Director at Regenerative Waste Labs, and Amanda Johnson, the UBC researcher behind Grasstic as they take a deep dive into the innovations and challenges around biomaterials — and the role that they might play in revolutionizing our food system.

This webinar will feature a speaker discussion followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. Registration is free.
