Over the summer, we ran a Refill quiz on our stalls with 3 questions. The first prize was a Chilly’s reusable bottle, the wooden spoon prize, a book called ‘How to go Plastic Free’.
Here are the 3 questions:
- How many single-use plastic water bottles are used in Swindon per day (based on a population estimate of 220,000)?70,400
- How many plastic water bottles were used per minute by Coca Cola in 2017?200,000
That’s 3 million tonnes of unnecessary single-use plastic packaging!
