Business leaders and residents in the Glebe are meeting to brainstorm ways to end single-use plastics in their neighbourhood.

It's not a change that is expected to happen overnight, but the Glebe Community Association Environmental Committee's Chair of the Taskforce on Reducing Single Use Plastics Andrew Johnson told 1310 NEWS' The Rick Gibbon Show, they're hoping to set some basic goals Tuesday night.

He sees the elimination of straws and plastic bags as low hanging fruit, and thinks those could be two of three single-use plastics identified as targets at the meeting.
