  • What would it take for Scotland to become a world leader in tackling single use plastic?
  • Should food and drink items be tackled first?
  • How can individual consumers play a role in tackling single use plastic? 


This would be an excellent first step forward in the midst of the current climate emergency. It would allow Scotland to be seen to be leading the way on these islands.

There is no need for some single covered plastics on foods such as cucumber, bananas and a whole lot more can be done to reduce plastics.

Supermarkets should be made to take back all the single use plastic and pay for its disposal...as they have to in Japan....where there is now hardly any single use plastic because of this law..

We urgently need legislation to make supermarkets responsible for the plastic that they are forcing consumers to buy provisions in....they can then take it up with their suppliers
