Thank you to all our members and supporters who helped us feed back to Government how we feel about plans to ban plastic straws. 

In summary, we said we want to save the environment too, but, please don't ban plastic straws until there is a real alternative (there isn't one yet), because some Disabled People need them to drink!

Merton CIL were also invited to share our views at a Merton Council Task Group on single use plastics, we hope we did justice to our members' views.
