We are pleased to announce the program for the 42nd Annual RCBC Conference: Inspiring Circular Innovation – How to Get to a Zero Waste Planet: Plan-It!. This year will feature 9 Plenary Sessions and Elizabeth May as our Closing Keynote Speaker.
Day 1 Highlights
Here's a quick look on the history of recycling in BC. Are you going to be a part of history?
What is The Relooping Fashion Initiative? From reloopingfashion.org:
Re-producing old cotton clothing into new material has been very challenging, because the worn-out fibers are too short to be spun into new thread. New cotton also needs to be added to each batch, making 100% post-consumer-waste textiles an impossible dream.
Until now. The Relooping Fashion Initiative not only maintains the quality of the re-produced fibers – it can actually improve it. The process uses new revolutionary technology that allows for virtually unlimited recycling of cellulose-based fabrics without the addition of any harmful chemicals or new material. This has dramatic positive impact to the environmental issues caused by the global textile industry today.
The closed-loop value chain maintains the value of the material, eliminates waste, and introduces a whole new line of sustainable future designs.

Thank you to the Canadian Plastics Industry Association (CPIA) for once again sponsoring the #RCBC2016 Conference Event App.
Powered by Attendify, last year's app was a successful new feature for RCBC Conference delegates. It was used by over 130 delegates last year to access the vital conference information from the program schedule, speaker profiles, sponsor profiles, exhibitor profiles, delegate lists and up-to-date push notification updates.
It will be available for download in the coming months for iOS and Android devices. We look forward to connecting with all of you once again in Whistler this coming May.
Experts from Canada and the Netherlands discuss how to scale up circular economy activity in Canada. Replacing today's take-make-dispose economy with one that is restorative by design, the circular economy is gaining significant traction globally. RCBC CEO, Brock Macdonald is featured.
