Great Scot Award For Sunnyside And Ullapool Primary Schools

EDM number 1774 in 2017-19, proposed by David Linden on 29/10/2018.

That this House congratulates the pupils and staff of Sunnyside and Ullapool Primary Schools on winning the Editor's Choice Award at the 2018 Sunday Mail and Steven Brown Art Great Scot Awards for its campaign work to reduce the use of plastic straws; notes that the campaign efforts led to 14 bars, restaurants, cafes and businesses in Ullapool as well as other large organisations such as Glasgow City Council and Caledonian MacBrayne to stop offering drinking straws or to switch to non-plastic alternatives; and commends the engaging use of social media to highlight the campaign which included the #NaeStrawAtAw hashtag.

This motion has been signed by a total of 5 MPs.
