Well done to Hereford City Councillors in their aim to tackle the climate crisis and lead by example (Bid to ban the bottles, March 21).  It must be better not to use plastic bottles at all than to recycle them, and surely the answer is indeed for councillors to lead by example and get into the habit of bringing their own reusable bottles of tap water to Town Hall meetings.
