Reduce plastic packaging in supermarkets

Every bit of synthetic plastic that's ever been produced is still somewhere on our planet. We have created a very close relationship with plastic; it’s in the fish we eat, and the water we drink. In 2016, the global production of plastics reached 335 million metric tons, with 60 million metric tons produced in Europe alone. Currently, there are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean, and it is predicted that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish.

 It is time to change our relationship with plastic... recycling is not enough. We need to reduce plastic production and consumption. Supermarkets need to be held accountable for the role they play in this cycle. Tesco, Sainsbury’s, let’s clear our oceans, and our bodies, by reducing the packaging on fruits and vegetables.

 As responsible consumers and citizens, we demand all supermarkets take leadership by reducing plastic packaging for the prosperity, and survival of our living home: the planet!
