Open to engineers aged 18-35, the IET Global Challenge is split into two separate competitions sponsored by Greenpeace and GreenSeas Trust. The Greenpeace challenge requires teams to think of ideas for reusable packaging designs or new approaches that enable supermarkets to dramatically reduce the need for packaging. According to Greenpeace, our oceans are slowly turning into a “plastic soup” with part of the problem being single-use plastic. More than 80 percent of marine litter originates from land and only 9 percent of global plastic is currently being recycled.
