CE to eliminate Single Use Plastic?

Home » Latest News » CE and Single Use Plastic?

At the upcoming CE Cabinet meeting on 9th October a motion tabled by Cllr Rachel Bailey, Leader of the Council, is on the agenda which aims to eliminate Single Use Plastic from all CE buildings by 2020.

From the motion summary : "We know how harmful single use plastics are to the environment, indeed in 2017 the National Federation of Women's Institutes (NFWI) called on the Government and industry to research and develop innovative solutions to stop the accumulation of micro plastic fibres in our oceans."

"We urge full Council endorsement of this campaign and in so doing seek to eliminate all single use plastic within CEC managed buildings and facilities by 2020 and seek to encourage the elimination of single use plastic within its supply chain by 2025."

The recommendation is that the cabinet endorse the National Federation of Women's Institutes campaign to reduce micro plastic fibres in our oceans — 'End plastic soup'.

The full agenda for next Tuesday's cabinet meeting is here.
