The Big Plastic Count is back

For one week in March, thousands of schools, households, community groups and businesses will be coming together to count their plastic waste. Almost a quarter of a million people took part in The Big Plastic Count in 2022 revealing that almost two billion pieces of plastic packaging are being thrown away a week.

You may be wondering why you are being asked to count your plastic again this year? Well, there’s a crucial reason – in 2024, governments will be at the negotiating table for a Global Plastics Treaty, aiming to pave the way for a worldwide reduction in plastic production.

This time around, the results of The Big Plastic Count will be used to convince UK politicians to lead the way at these talks and push for a really strong treaty. It’s a massive opportunity, and your participation can help make a significant impact!
