Blue Packaging Workshop - Introducing a new eco-sustainable alternative to polystyrene (EPS) boxes in the fishery sector to prevent and reduce ocean plastics pollution. This workshop is designed and organized in Barcelona by El Peix al Plat SCP to raise awareness about ocean plastics pollution among the local stakeholders and to present concrete solutions in order to reduce the use of polystyrene boxes during all the stages of production and distribution of seafood products. A new eco-friendly material will be presented to give to the local fishery sector (fishermen, seafood wholesalers, waste management company, etc.) the opportunity to limit the use of plastic by testing an alternative biodegradable material. This workshop is part of the Blue Packaging initiative which is supported by the Task Force “Beyond Plastic Med” (BEMED).
