Cup cri­sis

First News - - Home News -

Did you know that take­away cups you only use once are bad for the en­vi­ron­ment? If they’re not re­cy­cled they can have an im­pact on our seas. The Marine Con­ser­va­tion So­ci­ety car­ried out a sur­vey, which re­vealed that 72% of peo­ple in Scot­land would like peo­ple to be charged for sin­gle-use cof­fee cups. This would en­cour­age cus­tomers to bring them back for re­cy­cling, or to use re­fill­able cof­fee cups and drinks bot­tles in­stead. What do you think? Peo­ple marched through the city to raise aware­ness of the plight of wild an­i­mals. The Global March For Ele­phants, Rhi­nos And Lions theme is ‘March against ex­tinc­tion’ and sup­port­ers hope to put pres­sure on gov­ern­ments to stop the poach­ing of an­i­mals and end the trade in ivory and rhino horn (see p3).
