There will be a drop-in session about the proposed closure of Leith St on Thursday 16 March at 6:30 pm, at Cafe Camino
(adapted from an email from Alice Hunter of Greenpeace)
Great news – a motion has been put forward in the Scottish parliament in support of a deposit return scheme!
A recent poll showed that 78% of people surveyed in Scotland said they support the creation of a return scheme – adding a small deposit on each plastic bottle you buy, which you get back when you return it.
The more bottles returned, the more can be reused or recycled – reducing the amount that end up in landfill and littering our oceans.
Please use this link email your MSP, to ask him or her to support this motion.
