The Plastic Problem
The Plastic Problem aims to demonstrate the level of plastic consumption and waste in the UK in 2018 and encourage change. In the UK alone, over 18 billion plastic bottles a year are used, with only 3 billion of those being recycled. It is factors like these, which informed the project which sets out to effect change as our current situation is not sustainable. The project covers 3 areas of the plastic problem. One: the over consumption of plastic and the vast number of products we have to choose from in each supermarket. Two: the over packaging of food and drink products. Three: where it ends up. These three issues show the life cycle of plastic from its purchase, to its use and disposal.
