BPF takes plastic packaging to Twitter

By Joe Whitworth+


The British Plastic Federation’s Rigid Plastics Packaging Group is to co-host a Twitter Q&A session about plastic packaging.

BPF will work with Sense About Science; a charitable trust that equips people to make sense of scientific and medical claims in public discussion.

The session, with a provisional date of 10 April, aims to give consumers an understanding of the benefits of plastic packaging and to put their questions to the experts.

There will be a representative from the BPF’s Packaging Group and Sense About Science have recruited an independent toxicologist for the session.

If you have questions about plastics packaging you would like to see answered in the session, please send them to
