The borough council recently “formalised its commitment to reducing single use plastics.” (You can read about this in detail on the council’s website – https://bit.ly/2WiCwYB)
But there’s an obvious question. Where does the council stand on reducing ZERO use plastics? We have in mind the plastic flowers and foliage (we’re pretty sure that they’re plastic) that are suspended from the roof of Cambridge Square in The Square. They’re attractive, of course, but they have no real use. In that respect they’re worse than plastic drinking straws, since these do have a use, albeit a brief one.
We can’t get away from the fact that our councillors – who formalised the ‘policy’ towards single use plastics – have no option but to oppose zero use plastics too. We’ll watch to see how consistent they are.
