Big Compost Experiment

UCL’s Plastic Waste Innovation Hub invites you to help shape the future of the planet.

Participate in the Big Compost Experiment, our nationwide citizen science research experiment in compostable and biodegradable plastics.

The experiment has two parts. The first part is for everyone, whether you compost or not. It’s a short 5 minute survey. The second part is optional for those who compost. It’s a home composting experiment. To do this you’ll need a selection of compostable or biodegradable plastic items. See Experiment Guidelines for details on selecting your items and setup.

Your participation is vital to helping us combat plastic waste.
