Shop’s plas­tic ac­tion

Derby Telegraph - - NATIONAL -

WAITROSE re­moved more than 1,300 tonnes of en­vi­ron­men­tally un­friendly black plas­tic from its prod­ucts in 2018, the su­per­mar­ket has an­nounced.

Black plas­tic, which is dif­fi­cult to re­cy­cle, has been re­moved from hun­dreds of Waitrose prod­ucts in­clud­ing its own-brand fresh meat, fish, poul­try, fruit and veg­etable pack­ag­ing.

Waitrose aims to re­move black plas­tic from all its own-brand prod­ucts by the end of 2019 – and said it is more than half­way to­wards achiev­ing the goal.
