Big Plastic Count – Business Resources

This is the UK’s biggest ever investigation into household plastic waste. For 1 week in May (16th – 22nd), thousands of people up and down the country will be counting all the plastic packaging that they throw in the bin or recycling. Participants will receive their household plastic footprint, giving them an in-depth view of how much they throw away and what happens to it, and all of the data will contribute to an overall national picture, filling a crucial evidence gap on exactly how much plastic packaging waste is leaving UK homes. We will launch the results of this campaign at a parliamentary event on the 15th June 2022. You can watch their launch video here.

They are also encouraging community groups and businesses to take part, and complete the count together as a group of members or staff.  I have included both the business and the community group links. business resources and community resources to help.
