Client Earth Online Summit 2024 – Plastic and human health: the toxic link

June 5 , 10:00 am 11:00 am EDT

We all know that plastic poses serious environmental challenges, but it is less known just how toxic it can be for our health. But what does that mean in practice? Over 10,000 chemicals are associated with plastic throughout its life cycle, from its production to when it must be managed as waste. Our panel of experts will discuss the hidden dangers of plastic-derived chemicals and explore potential solutions, shedding light on the toxic link between plastics and health.
