Green Party in England & Wales

The Green Party today released results of a report on recycling rates
across the country, commissioned from Virtual Surveys

6070 people were asked about what proportion of their household waste
they recycled - with only 3 per cent saying they 'never recycle'

33 per cent of people 'always recycle everything they can,'

44 per cent recycle 'most things'

15 per cent 'sometimes recycle things'

Participants were also asked about their voting habits. Of those that
said they would vote Green, almost 50 per cent said they would
recycle everything, at least 10 per cent more than any other party,
and well above the national average.

Green Party Principal Speaker Keith Taylor commented: "Twenty years
ago recycling was considered a fringe activity. Now, increasing
numbers are stepping up to the environmental challenges we face.

"People are beginning to live on the planet as though we intend to
stay, but there is still much to be improved."

The Green Party wants to see local authorities across the country
working towards a Zero Waste strategy.

"Around the world, some cities and provinces, and businesses large
and small, have set target dates to achieve Zero Waste status as
early as 2020 or even 2010. Britain is lagging well behind the
leaders and is missing out on the economic and environmental benefits
of Zero Waste. New Zealand has become the first country to adopt a
'Zero Waste by 2020' policy. (1)

"The UK has an opportunity to lead the way on recycling, but despite
DEFRA'S incentives, we are still not doing enough. The goverment must
do more to ensure we recycle as much as we can.

"More and more people are now buying in to green living, and then
finding that the Green Partys radical policies around environmental,
economic and social justice are the right ones for the UK at the
beginning of a new century. The future has to be green, for all our
sakes.
