A Survey conducted by Ipsos MORI/King's College Polling Club survey says that in the UK, the public is concerned about plastic waste. But is not backed up by responsibility for finding a solution. 

"What would solve the problem?" is higher taxes in supermarkets and shops would help solve the problem, along with forcing councils to spend more on recycling. Big fines for householders who failed to recycle enough of their rubbish, only a quarter.

"What the people willing to do?" is  75 percent are willing to re-use disposable items such as plastic bags and bottles. 54 percent said that they buy more products made from recycled materials and 43 percent would stop buying goods that have packaging that cannot be recycled. This shows the views on how to tackle plastic waste among people in the UK.
