Reduce single-use plastic packaging options at Woolworths

It has been AMAZING to see Woolworths removing single-use plastic bags from their stores. However, there is still more to be done.

It would be incredible to see Woolworths reducing single-use plastic packaging for Woolworths branded products. This means offering more recyclable options for their packaging. Woolworths listened to us and our consumer demands for removing plastic bags. Let's see what more we can do!

Woolworths have shared the following statements:

'We have the greatest level of control over the packaging of our own brand and exclusive products and this is where we are focusing our efforts to minimise waste.'

'We will continue to work with all of our suppliers to actively pursue packaging alternatives that reduce the amount of packaging or increasing its recyclability where possible.'

Let's keep them to their word.

*Note, recycling in itself is not the solution - but it is a step in the right direction and an accessible and affordable option for the everyday Aussie.
