Join the Big Plastic Count!

The Big Plastic Count is the UK’s biggest ever investigation into household plastic waste created by Greenpeace and Everyday plastic to understand how much plastic we’re using in the UK and what’s really happening to it…

The Big Plastic Count will uncover the truth about how much household plastic we throwaway, and how much is really recycled. The nation will come together to count their plastic waste for one week in May and the new evidence will be crucial to convince the government, big brands and supermarkets to finally take ambitious action on plastic packaging.

How can I get involved?

  1. Sign up here: https://act.gp/3DaBtRa You’ll get sent a pack which includes everything you need for the week to make counting and sharing your results quick and easy.

  2. From May 16th-22nd, record all of the plastic packaging you throw away using the tally sheet provided!

  3. At the end of the week, you’ll be shown your own plastic footprint, revealing what really happens to it once it leaves your home, and evidence of the true scale of the UK’s plastic problem.

  4. The Big Plastic Count will also share tips on how you might be able to reduce plastic in day-to-day life.

It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the plastic crisis… The Big Plastic Count is an amazing opportunity to actually DO something about it!
