This week, Craig talks to Laura Young about her campaign to ban disposable vapes in Scotland and in the UK. They discuss why these devices exist, how they are marketed and what impact their improper disposal is having. They also discuss the possible role of the Circular Economy Bill in not just ensuring devices like these are recycled effectively but possibly how to avoid them reaching the market in the first place.

The website for the campaign to ban disposable vapes is here: https://www.lesswastelaura.com

Craig’s article on “single-use policies” is here: https://commonweal.scot/single-use-policy/
