Glasgow City Council has announced it is to stop using plastic straws in more than 26 cafes in the council’s museums, sports centres, offices, schools and the city chambers after Glasgow primary pupils highlighted the plight of marine wildlife.

Persuasive pupils from Sunnyside Primary School in Craigend, are waging war on plastic pollution and their impressive #NaeStrawAtAw campaign has inspired Glasgow City Council to switch to more eco-friendly options.

From the end of February, Encore, the council’s commercial catering division, will no longer provide straws with customers’ drinks and people who ask for one, will receive an eco-friendly alternative. The use of pre-packaged drinks supplied with plastic straws will also be reviewed to see if more environmentally friendly options are feasible.
