Milford, OH: TLMI announces that the association is partnering with Tarsus in creating an EcoStage, Powered by TLMI, at Labelexpo Americas September 13-15 in Rosemont, IL.
The EcoStage will be located at booth #3220 and over the course of the show’s three days, expert speakers and thought leaders will deliver presentations that discuss some of the most critical sustainability issues our industry is facing today. Sixteen speakers have committed to presenting on the EcoStage and presentations will kick off every hour, on the hour. Admission to the EcoStage is free for all show attendees.
Presentation highlights include several sessions led by Convergen Energy, a provider of renewable fuels for power generation facilities. Convergen helps manufacturers across industries avoid sending byproducts to landfill in addition to helping companies reduce fossil fuel usage and meet sustainability goals. Convergen’s CEO, Ted Hansen, will be giving a presentation all three days on the EcoStage, discussing converters’ non-landfill options for matrix and flexible packaging waste.
Other EcoStage highlights include Emily Tipaldo, Executive Director at U.S. Plastics Pact. U.S. plastics pact is a solutions-driven consortium with more than 100 diverse businesses and organizations across the plastics value chain working to rethink the way our industry designs, uses, and reuses plastics to create a path forward toward a more circular economy. The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) will also be presenting on the EcoStage, discussing the ways that labels are currently impacting recyclability and on the show’s first day, executives from Resource Label Group and Brook & Whittle will be discussing the current sustainability status of different brands and how to address label buyers’ unique sustainability goals.
TLMI Vice President of Sustainability, Rosalyn Bandy, comments, “The EcoStage, Powered by TLMI, will deliver three days of presentations and discussions centered around the current state of sustainability in our industry. Converters and suppliers are constantly looking for new ways they can improve their sustainability practices.
