7:43pm on 17 Apr 19 I definitely think we should try to cut down as much as we can on the amount of plastic we use, I'm not sure how easy it will be in practice with the current amounts of plastic the suppliers use. We'll probably have to campaign for the suppliers to reduce the amount they use, at the very least.
