Furthermore, 51% of 55-64-year-olds have expressed their concern about the impact that plastic is having on the environment and themselves; making the age group the most outspoken about plastic pollution. The study, by Harris Interactive, polled 1,000 UK shoppers and highlighted the biggest issues in reducing the number of single-use plastics. A quarter stated they don't believe the alternatives are as good, with a further 46% saying they don't believe there are enough alternatives to rival plastic packaging. The lack of alternative packaging was the third biggest issue; behind ocean (65%) and land (54%) pollution. Just under three-quarters of the participants polled said brands and manufacturers have the most responsibility to help the plastic problem; with 54% saying that consumers have more responsibility than the government (52%). When asked about which supermarkets have made the most progress in the past five years, nearly three in 10 said 'none of them', while 15% said Tesco. In comparison, just 3% believe Iceland has reduced its single-use plastics well, with only 4% believing Lidl has made significant progress. The survey highlighted that nearly a quarter of participants are willing to attempt cutting out single use plastics completely, with 23% saying they have tried a plastic-free challenge. 18-34-year-olds were most likely to take on the challenge, with two-thirds, of those who took the challenge, saying they managed to complete it. Challenges ranged from a plastic-free month, to a single shop with the aim of reducing the number of single-use plastic items bought. Nearly three in 10 (29%) shoppers stated they felt 'quite concerned' about the number of single-use plastics used to package their food and drink, with a further 22% saying they felt a 'little concerned'. On the other hand, 7% answered 'it doesn't matter', with 3% unable to decide. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Four-in-10-Brits-are-concerned-about-the-amount-of-plastic-packaging-in-their-food-and-drink-items-reveals-survey-04930 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Four-in-10-Brits-are-concerned-about-the-amount-of-plastic-packaging-in-their-food-and-drink-items-reveals-survey-04930 FMCG no longer the best paid sector for marketers, reveals poll FMCG no longer the best paid sector for marketers: A survey of marketers has revealed that FMCG is no longer the best paid sector for marketers, with entertainment coming out on top. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/FMCG-no-longer-the-best-paid-sector-for-marketers-reveals-poll-04815 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/FMCG-no-longer-the-best-paid-sector-for-marketers-reveals-poll-04815 One in five shoppers say they have adopted more environmentally friendly habits during the coronavirus pandemic, reveals survey One in five shoppers say they have adopted more environmentally friendly habits during the coronavirus pandemic: A global survey of shoppers has found that since the coronavirus pandemic began, a fifth of shoppers (20%) have adopted more green habits. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/One-in-five-shoppers-say-they-have-adopted-more-environmentally-friendly-habits-during-the-coronavirus-pandemic-reveals-survey-04719 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/One-in-five-shoppers-say-they-have-adopted-more-environmentally-friendly-habits-during-the-coronavirus-pandemic-reveals-survey-04719 45% of FMCG brands report sales being negatively affected by COVID-19 45% of FMCG brands report sales being negatively affected due to COVID-19: A survey has revealed that more than 45% of FMCG brands questioned in a recent poll have been negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/45percent-of-FMCG-brands-report-sales-being-negatively-affected-by-COVID-19-04643 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/45percent-of-FMCG-brands-report-sales-being-negatively-affected-by-COVID-19-04643 COVID-19 survey reveals experiences of consumers in trying to access essential items COVID-19 survey reveals experiences of consumers in trying to access essential items: A survey carried out by Loughborough University in April has revealed insight into the experiences of people trying to buy essential food items in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/COVID-19-survey-reveals-experiences-of-consumers-in-trying-to-access-essential-items-04640 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/COVID-19-survey-reveals-experiences-of-consumers-in-trying-to-access-essential-items-04640 Global survey reveals 50%of consumers are shopping with health in mind, due to COVID-19 Global survey reveals 50% of consumers are shopping with health in mind, due to COVID-19: A global survey by Accenture has found that half the respondents polled across 15 countries said they have been shopping more health consciously since the pandemic began, and plan to keep doing so when life returns to normal. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Global-survey-reveals-50percentof-consumers-are-shopping-with-health-in-mind-due-to-COVID-19-04639 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Global-survey-reveals-50percentof-consumers-are-shopping-with-health-in-mind-due-to-COVID-19-04639 Sainsbury's was the cheapest supermarket of 2019, according to Which?

The European Shopper Survey by IRI showed that while overall there is a growing desire for locally made products or national brands, when it comes to the generation Z demographic, big international brands reign supreme. The poll of 3,300 European consumers from France, Italy, Germany, Greece, The Netherlands, Spain and the UK found that younger shoppers (18-24) are interested in buying groceries and products seen as cutting edge or cool rather than choosing local brands. When it comes to beauty products, 65 percent of younger millennials would opt for well-known international brands, while just 9 percent would choose local. Six out of ten (61%) younger millennials find products by searching on the web, compared to 43 percent of older people. It also found that almost a quarter (23%) of 18-24 year olds use blogs and social forums to help inform their shopping decisions compared to just 15 percent of older people. The research also reveals insight into the way younger people source products, with 66 percent using the internet to research ahead of spending compared to 45 percent of shoppers over the age of 34. Smartphones are the medium used by many millennials and younger millennials to do their online shopping, with 55 percent of 18-34-year olds checking-out via their mobile compared to just 34 percent of those over 34. Reasons for younger shoppers choosing online shopping over traditional methods includes time-saving (42%), freedom to buy (39%) and a wider choice of goods (37%). Interestingly, while young millennials are interested in supporting products with environmentally friendly packaging or buying from a manufacturer that respects the environment, they are not as willing as the older generation to pay a bigger price for these benefits. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Millennials-in-Europe-prefer-big-FMCG-brands-to-local-survey-finds-04257 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Millennials-in-Europe-prefer-big-FMCG-brands-to-local-survey-finds-04257 Nine in 10 Brits are concerned about the consequences of plastic waste, research finds http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Nine-in-10-Brits-are-concerned-about-the-consequences-of-plastic-waste-research-finds-04139 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Nine-in-10-Brits-are-concerned-about-the-consequences-of-plastic-waste-research-finds-04139 Majority of Brits back Government’s plastic-free aisles proposals http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Majority-of-Brits-back-Governments-plastic-free-aisles-proposals-04104 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/Majority-of-Brits-back-Governments-plastic-free-aisles-proposals-04104 New report reveals why FMCG products significantly contribute to discount store growth http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/New-report-reveals-why-FMCG-products-significantly-contribute-to-discount-store-growth-03898 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/New-report-reveals-why-FMCG-products-significantly-contribute-to-discount-store-growth-03898
