Reduce the use of plastics across all services

You would have to have your head in the sand to be unaware of the scale of the plastic problem on this planet. Re-using and recycling IS NOT ENOUGH. We must act now to reduce the use of plastics being used in the first place, Think of how many plastics cups/wrappers etc are used each day across Borders Council premises? Schools, colleges, care homes, hospitals, GP surgeries, offices, libraries, soft play, gyms....ALL OF THIS MUST BE STOPPED - SWITCH TO USING RE-USABLE PLASTICS NOW. JUST MAKE IT COMPULSORY!

Why the contribution is important

Current practice is not sustainable. Borders Counsil could get a proud name for itself as the first truly green Council in Scotland. It will take courage. This is not a quick fix but if the future of our planet, for our children, is not the most important priority I dont know what is. Please SBC, be brave.
