Impact of Covid on Plastic Waste in LA

April 29 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm PDT

Covid-19 has increased demand for household products, takeout dining, and personal protective equipment. Along with this demand came increased generation of plastic, particularly single-use plastic. Join the Los Angeles Sustainability Executives Roundtable and USGBC-LA for a panel discussion to dive deeper into the issue of plastic waste and commercial buildings in Los Angeles.

This webinar will explore innovative ways of reducing plastic waste in commercial buildings, the largest generation category of plastic waste in California. With many office workers telecommuting until a vaccine is fully distributed in mid-2021, building owners currently have a unique opportunity to update building technologies and policies to curtail commercial building plastic consumption long-term.
