Pacific Northwest Technical Expedition: Report (2023)

In May 2023, the Ocean Plastics Leadership Network (OPLN) hosted a remarkable three-day technical exhibition, exploring the deposit return systems (DRS) and extended producer responsibility (EPR) practices for beverage containers in British Columbia (B.C.) and Oregon. We brought together 30 participants from major organizations across the beverage container value chain, fostering collaboration, experiential learning, and policy development on national EPR & DRS. Fortune 500 sustainability leaders, policymakers, leading NGOs, and government officials actively worked on circular solutions for beverage containers in the Pacific Northwest. Relive the highlights and insights from this impactful expedition, advancing our journey towards a sustainable future!
