INSPIRE WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS TO SOLVE GLOBAL CHALLENGES THROUGH PRODUCT INNOVATION

Plastic waste is a great concern to the environment to the point that it even affects us. Micro-plastic particles have been revealed in the placentas of unborn babies. As a doctor I am greatly concerned.

New study shows plastics release greenhouse gases, contributing to climate change. Plastic, when exposed to the elements, releases methane and ethylene – two powerful greenhouse gases that can exacerbate climate change.

We have the power to change that.

Session Takeaways

  • Ways to identify global challenges and how to solve them
