Thinking about Plastic and the Circular Economy

4th Jul, 2022

Exploring the balance of responsibilities the government and business now face with plastic and how this affects our present, our future, our planet and our wallets.

Plastic is an increasingly significant environmental and policy problem both globally and in the UK. Plastic free July seeks to recognise this impact, by encouraging organisations, families, and individuals to reduce their reliance on single use plastic.

This report investigates the scale of the plastic challenge in the UK, the policy, and regulatory approaches to reducing plastic in the UK, the impacts and implications for consumers and producers of plastic products and their likelihood of success.
