Cut produce packaging

Food packing is consumed by many, often consisting of thin films and black plastic. Packaging constitutes significant proportions of household waste, adding to the pollution of our land and sea. Food packaging is often not economical to recycle, and is relegated to landfill.
Savvy supermarket shoppers often find that goods packaged in plastic and thin film are less expensive than like-for-like loose produce, and so make purchasing decisions that compromise the environment. We the undersigned would like market leaders, by the end of 2018 to commit to ensuring that loose, unpacked foods are sold at a lower price than their identically packaged equivalents. In so doing, consumers making price-motivated purchasing decisions will necessarily consume less packaging, reducing landfill and recycled waste.
