Take part in The Big Plastic Count this week, to help gather the evidence needed to persuade the government, supermarkets and companies to tackle the plastic crisis.
You can download a sheet to log all the different plastics you throw away over the coming week to help build a picture of the extent of the problem.

We did the Big Plastic count and identified that most our plastic waste is from food packaging! Kids snacks, fruit and veg tubs etc. Getting a veg box delivered but not sure how to tackle the snacks? Any suggestions?
I get a veg bag too, from my local organic veg farm, which is great for reducing packaging. Fruit tubs (the lovely local strawberries just now) are the worst for me. It’s hard to avoid, unless you can get pick-your-own, which seems to have vanished locally since Covid. No idea how to reduce snacks packaging! I guess it’s just pressure on suppliers to re-think their packaging choices.
