The Bathroom Manufacturers Association – BMA – will be focusing its discussion on plastic waste at its upcoming AGM, taking place on the 20th June at the Hogarths Stone Manor Hotel in Kidderminster.

“This is a huge topic for our industry,” said BMA CEO Yvonne Orgill. “One that impacts on all manufacturers because of the amount of packaging and protective materials their products require.

“With predications that the amount of plastic in the world’s oceans is set to treble in a decade unless action is taken to deal with the problem, this is a challenge we all need to rise to.”

Keele University will be holding a presentation on plastic waste during the AGM, sharing details of its ongoing research into “eradicating single-use and difficult-to-recycle plastics”, according to the BMA.

The organisation will also give members an “exclusive preview” of a new industry bathroom package from a BMA affiliate member, as well as providing the results of its recent consumer research on bathroom habits.

“Our AGM presentations are only open to members but we will be inviting a small number of potential members to join us and see first-hand the value of the insights and essential knowledge that is provided,” said Orgill.
