Councillors could ask town businesses to stop selling single-use plastic bottles.

Next month Stamford Town Councillors will consider sending a letter to shops requesting that they stop selling single use plastic bottles.

The idea, which was put forward by the Climate Action Working Group, hopes to reduce plastic waste and instead encourage people to use refillable bottles.

The matter as briefly discussed at a Stamford Town Council meeting on Tuesday evening (November 30).

Coun David Taylor, who also considers himself passionate about the climate emergency, said: "For me, this issue always has been about reducing plastic usage.
