Join The Big Plastic Count!

This March, join the UK's biggest-ever plastic investigation: The Big Plastic Count (March 11th-17th, 2024). We're making strides to reduce plastic waste, but there's more to do!  Let's gather valuable data to make a difference.


Across the country, households of all shapes and sizes, schools, community groups and businesses, will gather new evidence. How much plastic are we really having to throw away, and what happens to it?

This is to show the government it’s time to commit: reduce single plastic use by 50% by 2025 by switching to reusable options that work for everyone – and ban sending our waste to other countries. And help push the government, brands and supermarkets to take bold action to tackle the plastic crisis.
