Your family has the opportunity to participate in an important national investigation.
The Big Plastic Count is the UK’s biggest ever investigation into household plastic waste. By counting your household plastic waste packaging for a week, you and your child will help tackle plastic pollution.
The survey will take place from Monday 21 March to Sunday 27 March.
This year is crucial in the fight against plastic pollution. The Government is deciding targets to reduce plastic waste. With your help, The Big Plastic Count will uncover the truth about how much household plastic is recycled, presenting real evidence that will persuade the government to take action.
This isn’t about rating your recycling habits, so don’t feel embarrassed by how much you throw away. Everyday plastic is hard to avoid. That’s what we want to change. By taking part in The Big Plastic Count, you and your family are part of the solution.
After all, recycling alone cannot solve the plastic crisis. There needs to be less plastic in the first place. That’s why our mission is for the government to set a target to reduce single-use plastic by 50% by 2025 and to ban waste exports to other countries. Find out more about waste exports here: greenpeace.org.uk/wasteminster.
We invite your whole family on this journey. Together, we can uncover the truth about plastic recycling and stop everyday plastic at the source.
