Commissioned by Zero Waste Scotland, they said they would support regulations that limit their use.
With an estimated 300 million plastic straws, and 50 million plastic plates used annually in Scotland¹, the poll found that 66% of respondents described themselves as being very or fairly concerned about the amount of items designed to be used once.
It also revealed that 69% support the introduction of regulations to reduce the use of single-use items and packaging.
The Scottish Government is seeking views on the introduction of new legislation to restrict the supply of single-use plastic items.
Iain Gulland, chief executive of Zero Waste Scotland, said: “Most of us don’t ‘need’ many of these single-use items.
“By choosing reusables over disposables we can still have the benefit without the needless waste and carbon emissions.”
