Scotland To Tackle Ocean Litter Produced By Marine Industries
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon addressed international delegates attending Scotland’s International Marine Conference in Glasgow last week.
The First Minister announced a £175,200 campaign promoting the use of re-usable sanitary products to reduce the more than 100 billion pieces of sanitary waste disposed of every year.
In the coming weeks the Scottish Government will also publish proposals to make it an offence to throw litter overboard from all Scottish fishing vessels while at sea.
