East of Scotland Branch News

From Loraine Hartley

The Branch held a business meeting on 22 June, where Denise Connelly, Sector Manager for Zero Waste Scotland, gave a presentation on Sustainable Packaging Choices with regard to the challenges now and in the future, work underway across the UK, and share drivers. The presentation was then followed by a Q&A session. We would like to thank Denise for this informative session and if you would like a copy of the presentation, please let me know.

Anyone interested in sustainable packaging or looking for further information may also find the following links of some use:

The Branch has not met since the June meeting because of holidays but our Chair, Sean Hunter, has ensured that we have received all relevant information to keep us up to date.

In September 2021 we at last had our long-postponed boat trip around the Forth, taking in the bridges and various other points of interest, followed by a late lunch and some light refreshments. Further information about the day will be available in the December issue of this magazine.

Branch timetable

  • Tuesday 12 October (Teams): committee meeting.
  • Tuesday 2 November (Teams): business meeting followed by presentation from Wendy Rayner, Sustainability Manager, NHS National Scotland about Sustainable Packaging Choice from a Large Public Sector Organisation. We hope to follow this with a supplier’s point (TBC).
