Supermarkets to go zero waste (free of plastic packaging)

This petition had 19,155 supporters

Whilst the plastic bag charge in the UK has decreased use of bags, with figures reporting between 78 and 85% reduction, still the use of plastic in food packaging is huge. Most of this waste goes into landfill and this is not acceptable.

Opting for food without plastic packaging could be a huge relief for our limited resources, however until the supermarkets change their packaging this is going to be difficult for consumers who frequently go for convenience in our 'one stop shop' age.

We need to act now before this problem gets worse - it's not one to hand onto the next generation.

Please sign the petition to ask the major retailers (and our lovely local farm shop) to end plastic packaging on foods!
