ABOUT the panel:
> Anna Bordignon, founder of Munch, will tell us about their product stewardship focus at Munch and nil products and their new project - the Silicone Send Back. This is a first in Australasia, to start repurposing post-consumer silicone in New Zealand. Munch is about empowering families to change the world and making it easier for you to be more sustainable, with all products being eco friendly in some way - from high quality reusables, to organic and biodegradable.

> Lucy Kebbell, Commonsense director, will share what actions they are taking to remove as much plastic packaging as possible while expanding their range of unpackaged and reusable options. Lucy will also discuss the complexities of packaging in the food industry within the wider context of taking action against climate change.

> Mikaila Ceelen is CoGo's Business Impact Manager. With a Master's Degree from the University of Canterbury, her passion lies in promoting conscious consumption and alternative lifestyles including zero waste, which is what she did her primary research in. At CoGo she works with businesses directly, onboarding them into the CoGo app, aligning their accreditations and showcasing the amazing work they're doing in the sustainability space to help grow an even larger community of conscious consumers. Mik will speak about how CoGo is supporting more circular solutions for consumers and businesses (with a focus on plastics) and why this work is so important in the context of the climate emergency - specifically with carbon tracking - and our consumer power as individuals to make better choices.

> Darcy Snell is Founder of The Tiny Plastic Factory, a social enterprise that recycles used plastic from local businesses and supplies quality recycled plastic feedstock to manufacturers within New Zealand. Established here in Wellington in 2018, their purpose is to accelerate the transition of the global plastics industry towards a circular economy.
