How is Derry and Strabane District Council Tackling Plastic Pollution?

Plastic Promise

''Derry and Strabane District Council have already begun to look at ways of reducing plastic usage. All plastic drinking cups have been removed from our water fountains and therefore people are required to use their own bottles / cups for their water. When sports events are being held, council have reduced the provision of plastic drinking bottles. Council are also hoping to incorporate sustainable packaging into their events i.e. make it mandatory for vendors at events to only use compostable / sustainable food packaging and eliminate use of plastics.''
