Plas­tic re­moval

Daily Star - - NEWS -

A SU­PER­MAR­KET chain has re­moved more than 1,300 tonnes of black plas­tic from its own-brand prod­ucts in the past year.

Waitrose says it has hit its tar­get to re­move it from hun­dreds of prod­ucts.

The ma­jor­ity of black plas­tic pack­ag­ing is coloured with car­bon black pig­ments, which means it can­not be eas­ily sorted in most re­cy­cling sys­tems.

As a re­sult, it com­monly ends up be­ing dis­posed of in land­fill.
