SUEZ publishes the 2sd edition of the barometer produced by Odoxa

The French and waste reduction“(“The French and waste reduction“):

    • 88% of French people, or 9 out of 10 French people, consider waste reduction a national priority
  • Growing interest in reuse practices: 57% of French people adhere to the principle of recycling centers

On the occasion of European Waste Reduction Week, SUEZ publishes the annual barometer: “The French and waste reduction“(“The French and waste reduction“) in partnership with the Odoxa polling institute. This new edition reveals the growing interest of the French for the environment: 9 out of 10 French people consider waste reduction a national priority and 56% of them think that we must adopt new modes of consumption Faced with this observation, how do the French act to reduce their waste, what are the obstacles encountered and where are the areas for improvement?

The French are ready to limit their waste

In France, waste reduction is now a fundamental trend. Indeed, 88% of French people say they are concerned about reducing their daily waste. A phenomenon accentuated by the health crisis which has caused a change in behavior for 32% of French people. However, 64% of them regret the lack of incentives from the State and 35% report difficulties in reducing their waste, compared to 30% in 2020, due to the predominance of packaging.

The French are aware of the need to change their behavior and their consumption patterns

Beyond “sorting well”, a practice assimilated by 89% of French people, more than half of them (56%) consider that it is necessary to adopt new modes of consumption. For example, avoiding food waste and consuming tap water are common practices for 70% and 56% of French people, respectively. On the other hand, only 36% of French people recycle their bio-waste in a composter and 16% buy food products in bulk. These results can be explained by the type of accommodation (apartment, house), or by the presence of services promoting waste reduction near the home.

The French are increasingly interested in reuse practices

In 2021, the reuse and second-hand sector continues to be an excellent driver of waste reduction: 68% of respondents resell objects and equipment on dedicated platforms (leboncoin, Vinted, etc.) and 67% do donations to associations, recycling centers and collection trucks. Besides, 57% of French people fully support the principle of waste reception centers and recycling centers.
