Ban plastic bags – in Edinburgh : The Edinburgh Reporter

Edinburgh is set to be the first Scottish city to work towards banning the use of plastic bags in our shops. At a meeting of the Transport, Infrastructure and Environment committee of the council last week, Councillor Alison Johnstone  proposed a scheme that will reward customers who choose to avoid using plastic bags. This scheme was first introduced and successfully run by Greener Leith and was highlighted in the Guardian Edinburgh blog.
