Over half of Londoners plan to use reusable flasks instead of single-use plastic: The quest to reduce plastic consumption continues to gain momentum, with more than half of London dwellers saying they plan to boycott single-use bottles in favour of reusable containers, according to a recent survey. 
The findings came to light in a survey on behalf of Soda Stream, which found almost all respondents living in London believed they can positively help shape the future of the planet by choosing packaging materials other than plastic. 
Polling 2,000 adults (266 who live in the capital) the survey found 34% of Londoners already favour using a reusable flask over single-use bottles with 56% saying in the future they will ditch plastic in favour of more environmentally kind packaging. 
The survey also revealed that television programme of the moment, Love Island has influenced views on water bottles, with 9% of Londoners saying seeing contestants on the show drinking from water flasks has encouraged them to follow suit. 
In recent months we have seen national campaigns to reduce the number of plastic straws being used in the UK, with support from top food chains including McDonald's, Wagamama, Pret A Manger, Pizza Express and Costa. 
There has also been a huge reduction in single-use plastic bag usage with 78% of respondents in the capital confirming they now use a bag for life or another alternative when shopping, in a bid to protect the environment.
