The plastic experiment – Plastexperimentet


from 25/04/2022 until 31/12/2023

Through a nationwide citizen science project, involving participants across the whole of Sweden collecting and analysing plastic waste, we will undertake a scientific study together with a researcher to investigate the extent of plastic in the Swedish natural environment.


How much plastic is there in Swedish nature? What type of plastic is it and how does it vary between different places and types of habitat? These are some of the questions we want to answer.
