The One Show filled their studio with plastic rubbish, and everyone made the same joke
It was to highlight a very important issue.
We use far too much plastic as a society – anyone who watch Blue Planet last year knows that.
Monday night’s The One Show drew attention to this issue, with a special focusing on how we can cut down on single-use plastics, featuring guests as varied as Chris Packham and Michael Gove.
To highlight the situation, they relocated the sofa outside, where there were surrounded by 8.7 tonnes of plastic that had been collected by volunteers from beaches across the country.

It certainly looked different to the normal studio – but viewers who tuned in late thought they’d actually tuned into Mad Max or something.
I turned on The One Show with the mute on and it took me 30 seconds to work out what was going on. pic.twitter.com/1F1181GKIn

Alex Jones did confirm that all the plastic would be recycled after the show finished.
