This study aims to investigate household waste, packaging, its uses and disposal. We have the possibility to change towards environmentally friendly practices. The findings of this study will help people to realise better practices. Questions were asked in the form of a survey. The International English Speakers Association of Finland was the target group for responses. A product passed its life-cycle, the materials it is composed of should be designed for further use. Materials are mixed with other materials during production. The recycle process can be complex and costly. The purpose of packaging is product protection. Packaging tends to be single use. The popular place to dispose of plastic was in mixed waste. Reusable packaging favoured by respondents. Most were for too much packaging. Packaging is the main contributor to household waste.
