Over 46 million pieces of plastic are used each week by residents in north London, research for ACR+ member North London Waste Authority (NLWA) has found. NLWA teamed up with Everyday Plastic, one of the founders of the national British campaign The Big Plastic Count, to gain a greater understanding of the scale of north London’s plastic packaging waste with north London specific research. Over eight thousand people from more than 3,000 households across north London were surveyed in May 2022. In just one week, these homes threw away a staggering 191,710 pieces of plastic. Fruit and veg packaging was the most commonly counted item (17%), closely followed by snack bags, packets and wrappers (14%).
