The American Chemistry Council is taking another stab at using social media to start a dialogue on plastics issues, with its second Blog Summit. The new summit went live today, and the topic is a focused on plastics, "Too Valuable to Waste." Participants in this go-around include Sharon Kneiss, ACC vice president of products divisions and blog moderator, plus Bill Carteaux, president and CEO of the Society of the Plastics Industry; John Frederick, executive director of the Professional Recyclers of Pennsylvania Recycles; Blaire Pollock, solid waste planner of Orange County, N.C.; Anne Johnson, director of the GreenBlue Sustainable Packaging Coalition; Billy Jones, general manager of Salvage America; John Lively of Preserve Products; Patty Moore, president of Moore Recycling; Rachelle Strauss, blog author from MyZeroWaste.com; Amanda Wills, assistant editor of Earth911.com; and Jeff Wooster, Dow Chemical Co.'s North American senior value chain manager. Some of the initial posts include "the bright side of the recession" from Wills, "let's make it EASY for people to recycle" from Wooster, and the interestingly named "return to Gilligan's Island" from Jones. Let's watch and see where the debate takes them.
What's the state of plastics recycling?
