Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to examine different local actors and workplaces to find out what they are doing to reduce the use of plastic. Four interviews were conducted to find out how they are working to reduce plastic in their workplaces and if the informants were aware of the impact that plastic has on the environment and on human health. The results show that the awareness of the informants has increased, and they are acting to reduce plastic at the workplace. The customers are informed by the informants at the workplace of the actors work to reduce their use of plastic. The public can participate in events hosted by the county where they can come and see what is being done for the environment, human health and the reducing of plastic in nature. Therefor it is very important that the county, local shops and the population are cooperating to ensure a plastic free environment and better health for the people.
