The big plastic count

is back from 11 – 17 March and registration is now open.

Why not take part as a church, or perhaps Junior Church or your local school could rise to the challenge?

Taking part is really easy:

When you register, you’ll receive a free pack which includes everything you need to take part; count all your plastic waste from 11 – 17 March; submit your data via the website by 31st March; discover your footprint and use the results to make a difference!

Nearly 100 billion pieces of plastic packaging are thrown away by UK households every year, and just 12% is recycled in the UK.

Right now, world leaders are negotiating a Global Plastics Treaty which is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to protect our planet from plastic pollution.

You can help by taking part in the Big Plastic Count – the results will be used to convince UK ministers to lead the way at the United Nations talks and push for a strong treaty.
