Tony Corbin, in this month’s edition of Packaging News, puts forward these statistics:
- 86% of all British adults claim to be worried about recycling
- 90% of people aged 55 and above show the most concern.
- Nearly a fifth of the British public, increasing to over a quarter of millennials aged 18–34 years, don’t understand what they can and cannot recycle.
Ramon Arratia, Sustainability Director at Ball Beverage Packaging Europe has said that “I don’t think these figures reflect a lack of interest from millennials or the British public in general, more a challenge that we face to ensure everyone is fully informed about what can and cannot be recycled”.
