In Sydney’s Darling Harbour, experts at Australia’s inaugural conference on reducing plastic pollution in Asia Pacific (Beyond Plastic Pollution) have shared a number of possible solutions for the environmental challenge of plastic litter.

The event was organized by advocacy group Boomerang Alliance.Eco-Business
