Potential for first tax on plastic straws to protect marine life

"Scotland could become one of the first places in the world to charge consumers a tax to use plastic straws as part of a drive to protect marine life. Ministers are studying legislative options to cut the use of disposable straws and throwaway coffee cups to reduce the 8m tons of plastic waste that enters the oceans each year, as highlighted by the BBC’s Blue Planet II series." - Excerpt from The Times Newspaper.
