Chamber and committees

Question ref. S6W-09638
Asked by: Monica Lennon, Central Scotland, Scottish Labour
Date lodged: 7 July 2022


To ask the Scottish Parliamentary Corporate Body what work has been carried out to assess the use of single-use plastics within the Scottish Parliament.

Current status: Answered by Claire Baker (on behalf of the SPCB) on 4 August 2022


In line with our sustainability strategy, we have been compliant with the requirements of the Scottish Single Use Plastics ban for a number of years already. All of our disposable cutlery, hot food and soup containers, salad boxes, coffee cups and lids are made from a compostable material. We have also removed single use cups at water coolers and plastic straws in our bars, as well as switching to jugs of water in the Chamber rather than bottles.
