Waitrose are fan­tas­tic on black plas­tic

Daily Record - - NEWS -

WAITROSE have an­nounced that they re­moved 1300 tons of en­vi­ron­men­tally un­friendly black plas­tic from their prod­ucts last year.

The ma­te­rial can­not eas­ily be sorted in the re­cy­cling process, mean­ing much of it goes to land­fill.

Waitrose said they had re­moved it from hun­dreds of prod­ucts in­clud­ing their own-brand fresh meat, fish, poul­try, fruit and veg­etable pack­ag­ing.

They aim to re­move it from all own-brand prod­ucts by the end of the year.
