Everyday Plastic: What we throw away and where it goes

Regular price £20.00 £0.00

This new report endorsed by a major environmental organisation estimates that the UK population throws away over 295 BILLION pieces of plastic every year.

In a unique personal experiment, Daniel Webb decided to store all the plastic waste he threw in the bin for 12 months. Shortly after moving to Margate on the Kent coast in 2016, he quickly learned that he was not provided with a recycling service at his flat. Motivated by plastic pollution and wanting to dig deeper into murky national recycling figures, he launched a personal investigation to understand exactly what he throws away and where it ends up.

This 56-page A5 book is printed on 100% recycled paper and with eco inks and adhesive.
