Although our research does not show clear evidence to support a full ban on items being made out of plastic, we recommend the Scottish Government should carry out a full review of how to reduce the use of plastic, with consideration of a full or partial ban for certain products in Scotland. Further research should also be carried out to explore the reasons why people may support or oppose a ban on products being made out of plastic.
