Introduce a ban on plastic packaging for fruit and vegetables in all UK shops
background
Plastic damages our environment and threatens our oceans and wildlife. Unnecessary use of plastic by supermarkets is unconscionable. There is no need for fruit and veg to come wrapped in plastic (with limited exceptions) this is not the case in other countries and is a practice that must stop.
additional details
I used to live in the USA where most fruit and vegetables in the supermarkets were sold loose - this is also the norm elsewhere. Given what we now know about the damage plastic does to our environment and oceans, not to mention the environmental cost in CO2 to produce it, it is unconscionable for supermarkets to carry on using unnecessary plastic for fruit and veg. The supermarkets will not take the initiative on this. The government must act on this now to prevent more plastic pollution.
