Plas­tic-free shop aisle

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

A “WORLD first” plas­tic-free su­per­mar­ket aisle is be­ing un­veiled in Am­s­ter­dam, prompt­ing calls from cam­paign­ers for re­tail­ers to roll them out in the UK.

More than 700 prod­ucts will be avail­able with­out plas­tic pack­ag­ing in the aisle be­ing set up in a new metro-sized pilot store of su­per­mar­ket Eko­plaza in the Dutch city, in­clud­ing meat, rice, sauces, dairy, choco­late, ce­re­als, fruit and veg­eta­bles.

En­vi­ron­men­tal group A Plas­tic Planet, which came up with the idea, said it was a “land­mark mo­ment”.
