Bournemouth Council Ban the plastic straw and single use plastic cups
09/07/18 We Won!!
Due to your support, I can confirm that the council has made the following changes:
- Remove plastic straws from Council catering kiosks.
- Council-owned catering outlets will use only plastic-free, compostable or biodegradable cups and stirrers.
- Phase out plastic cutlery in Council run catering kiosks.
- Introduce reusable cups in the Prom Café & Prom Diner outlets
- Replacing plastic ice cream spoons with wooden ones in Council catering kiosks.
In addition, the council are participating in the ‘Refill Bottle Scheme’ allowing visitors to refill their own bottle at Council run premises. In addition, the council will encourage catering contractors to do the same.
