Counting on … day 148

Take part in The Big Plastic Count!

“We all know that too much plastic packaging is being produced – the UK produces more plastic waste per person than almost any other country in the world (only the US is worse!)? And if things carry on as they are, the amount of plastic produced around the world is set to double in the next 20 years. Recycling alone isn’t going to solve the plastic problem – we’re producing too much in the first place and our recycling systems can’t cope.” Green Peace

During one week in May record each piece of plastic you throw away. This mass survey will produce data which will allow Green Peace to convince companies, local authorities and government  of the scale of the plastic problem in the UK.
