UK Supermarkets take note!

pexels-photo-802221.jpegEkoplaza, a supermarket chain with 74 branches has opened a plastic-free aisle in its Amsterdam store. There are over 700 plastic-free products available that’s a lot of products for one aisle so it must be a pretty big store!! Here’s hoping the UK supermarket giants follow suit, as 40% of all plastic produced is used in packaging and half of that is used for food and drink.
Iceland has already pledged to eliminate plastic from its own brand packaging within five years and the PM has vowed to eliminate avoidable plastic waste by 2042 but I think Ekoplaza has shown us that it can happen a bit quicker than that!!
