The initial episode saw the pair investigate the enormous ‘single use’ plastic crisis and explored how we can help fight against it.

In War on Plastic: The Fight Goes On, Hugh will look at the damaging impact of sandwich packaging, of which the UK eats around six million per day.

As Hugh investigates how much of the plastic-lined packaging is actually recycled, he comes to realise that the industry is hiding some sinister secrets about their waste management.
