Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic, my local Superstore (and most likely many more across the country) have been pre-packaging the bulk items in single-use plastic containers. This is an important measure to take to ensure the safety of customers and employees to help stop the spread of COVID-19, however it is not the most eco-friendly solution.

Biodegradable plastics are innovative and useful materials, and swapping to more a more environmentally-friendly option wherever possible will make a big difference in eliminating the amount of single-use plastic waste produced, would not alter the customer's experience or ability to use the product, and Superstore be seen as a leader in sustainability, and an affordable and accesable option to customers hoping to lower their environmental footprint. Hopefully these new changes will  result in more environmentally friendly initiatives in the future!

It is important that we all do our part in protecting the environment. According to a recent report from the United Nations Environment Programme, the world produces more than 400 million tonnes of plastic materials every single year. Many of those materials can take up to 1000 years or more to decompose and only 9% of all plastic waste ever produced has been recycled.

This is where biodegradable plastics can come in as a better alternative to conventional single-use plastics because:

They are equally resistant, durable and versatile.
Under specific conditions, they can be 100% degradable.
They do not change the flavour or scent of the food contained.
They contribute less to climate change.
Their production reduces non-biodegradable waste that contaminates the environment.

Please consider swapping to a more sustainable alternative, and make Superstore be a leader in shopping sustainably!
