Sustainability: Everything you need to know

Over 500 attendees from over 20 countries including a number of key party product suppliers watched the sustainability conference (SILC) that took place over two days at the end of last week (June 24 and 25), with all delegates on a mission to be updated, educated and informed on the latest progress, as the consumer products industry moves to a more sustainable future.

For those that were unable to attend, the content is available to watch until 1 August 2021. Tickets can be purchased quickly and safely online, with a cost of just £100 for a whole host of vital business information.

“The sustainability agenda has moved on dramatically and this was  reflected this in the line-up of presentations and panel discussions, focusing heavily on retail, legislation and how we, as an industry, can use brands to drive positive sustainable change,” comments Helena Mansell-Stopher, curator of SILC and founder of Products of Change (owner and organiser of SILC).

“We had full support from an incredible line-up of speakers and panellists – from leading retailers such as Asda and Tesco to sustainability experts, as well as visionary brand owners and trailblazing product manufacturers, who set out to inspire, educate and connect, for the common good,” stressed Helena.

The conference was attended by brand owners, product suppliers and retailers from all core categories to include gifts, housewares, greetings, toys, apparel and textiles.
