Pledge your support for Straw Free Chester
Chester Conservatives are supporting Straw Free Chester, the campaign to make Chester the UK's first plastic straw free city. Show your support here.
I am presenting this motion for debate to Council on Thursday. My hope is that it will receive unanimous approval and that Chester West and Chester will become an exemplar local authority leading on the elimination of plastic.
Over eight million tonnes of plastic enter the oceans every year with 80% coming from land. The BBC's excellent programme, Blue Planet 2, has brought home the impact of this message.
