Help us make it happen Donate to FoD
Plastic Free

Single-use plastic packaging has created pollution with worrying impacts on both humans, wildlife and the environment. So what can be done?

To mark the launch of new campaign action group, Plastic Free Sheffield Central, hear from 'Packaging fairy' Sarah Greenwood, a consultant working on the University of Sheffield's Many Happy Returns project, which aims to enable reusable packaging systems and so reduce the need for single-use plastic.

At this event, Sarah will talk about how reuse systems could reduce the environmental impact of plastic, and you're invited to join the discussion.

Arrive 7pm for 7.30pm start.


With degrees in Physics and Polymer Science from the University of Sheffield, Sarah Greenwood has over 20 years’ experience in the plastics and packaging industries. She now works as a sustainable packaging and plastics specialist, working with companies from start-ups to blue chips on all aspects of innovation, specification and problem solving.
