UK spends £1bn a year on litter collection!

As we indicate on our website, 2016 figures show that the UK spends £1bn each year on the collection of 30,000 tonnes of litter! The introduction of a 5p plastic bag taxation in the Autumn of 2015 was a positive move but are we really doing enough to reduce packaging, or at least reduce its environmental impact?

In the image above, all litter items shown were found within 100 metres of that very bin!

In the Prime8 pilot game that releases in January 2017, we ask the children a simple question. That question relates to the variety of litter that they see most commonly near where they live. We chose what we consider to be the three most prominent offenders. What do you think?

In your opinion, what do you consider to be the main cause of litter where you live?
