Short summary: I would like to conduct a social science based project surrounding investigating behaviours of plastic consumption and plastic waste.

Methods: media content analysis of articles with "plastic" in the title, see if Blue Planet II has impacted the tone, survey to assess awareness of plastic problem, and willingness to take basic steps (reusable bottles, cups and deposit schemes).
