Littering and Plastic Waste Survey

 
 
Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Survey
 
The Welsh Youth Parliament is made up of 60 members aged 11-18 who have been elected to represent the views of children/young people across Wales. Find out more: https://www.youthparliament.wales/

 One of the priorities of the Welsh Youth Parliament is considering how we can reduce waste and our use of plastic to improve our environment.

 If you are a young person living and/or receiving your education in Wales,  the Littering and Plastic Waste Committee of the Welsh Youth Parliament would like to hear what you are already doing to reduce plastic and waste to improve our environment and your ideas about what we should do regarding this issue in the future.

 You do not need to answer every question. Please feel free to only answer the questions you feel comfortable answering.
