Recycle for London launches #JustOneThing campaign
We're delighted to launch our new #JustOneThing campaign to encourage Londoners to recycle more. Supported by the Mayor of London as well as Gemma Cairney, Radio 1 DJ and London resident, the campaign conducted a poll amongst 2,000 Londoners to find out a bit more about attitudes to recycling in the capital.
65% of those asked said they wished they recycled more - so why not give it a go? By recycling just one more item a week, you can make a huge difference.
