Quarter of Britons fail to recycle cans regularly
New research shows that one in four people in Britain still fail to regularly recycle cans, glass and cardboard.
OnePoll have found that many still do not recycle, but 30% want to do more to improve their recycling habits.
A fifth of the 2000 people who answered the poll believed the pandemic has caused them to recycle more than before.
A further 57% said they would be more likely to recycle if they knew it would reduce their carbon footprint.
But more than half also admitted they don’t know enough about their personal impact on the environment.
Gemma Morgan, from evian, which commissioned the research, said: “It’s great to see so many consumers want to do more to improve their recycling efforts and are already taking steps to reduce their carbon footprint.
“Now more than ever, it is vital that we all come together to tackle the climate crisis.
“That’s why, as a carbon neutral brand, we want to raise awareness about the importance of recycling during this Recycle Week and how it can contribute to reducing carbon emissions.”
