Funding for Scottish islands to ditch single-use packaging

… a total of £600,000 in grant funding provided by the Scottish Government and European Regional Development Fund to empower shops, from Shetland to Arran and all the islands in between, to take the next steps in the war on waste by ditching single-use packaging and moving to reusable options. Single use grocery packaging, from tubs and trays to bottles and bags account for around 13 per cent of all household waste across the country.
