    Keynote Experience: “Facts for a Brighter Future”

    In this captivating keynote, Dr. DeArmitt, the leading independent expert on plastics and the environment, dispels myths we’ve all seen on the internet by presenting solid peer-reviewed scientific evidence. See the facts, dispel fiction and hear how to fix our problems for a brighter future. The only talk to cover materials use, waste, litter, degradation, microplastics, ocean plastic and more!

    Dr. DeArmitt shows how the evidence leads to solutions and policies that actually work.


    Ocean plastic quantities are ~1000x less than claimed and not increasing


    Not a significant threat to turtles, whales or birds


    Microplastics make up 0.001% of dust we ingest and are as safe as clay or cellulose


    BPA, PFOA/PFAS “forever chemicals”, NIAS, phthalates, stabilizers, migration and more!

    The keynote talk amazes and delights audiences. Surveys show that plastics industry workers are ashamed of their jobs, but after seeing the evidence they are proud and remotivated. Each keynote can be customized to your needs and included 10 signed hardcover copies of The Plastics Paradox book.

    A new keynote devoted exclusively to microplastics, degradation and biodegradation was just released in 2024. It covers amounts, types, exposure and health effects on humans and animals. It also explains how they are formed and what they degrade into. If you have customers, regulators and other stakeholders asking tough questions and don’t want to spend a fortune doing studies, then check out this powerful new microplastics keynote talk.

It is written in a very direct style, stating the facts and science behind materials (comparing to plastic application) and highlights key points to consider when making material choices. The book manages to dispel myths about plastic and explain in an easy to understand way, clearly portraying the information. As a Packaging Technologist, the information is great for consideration against other factors when choosing the right material for the application.”
