from BBC news.UK supermarkets produce too much packaging, almost 40% of which is non-recyclable, local councils say.
The Local Government Association argues supermarkets should pay towards the collection of their packaging as an incentive to cut back.
In a survey of 29 common grocery items, it found Waitrose had the most wrapping while T***o had the least.
But Waitrose said it had cut the weight of its packaging by a third since 2001 and believed the report was misleading.
Lidl had the least recyclable packaging on their products, Sainsbury's contained the most.
So perhaps now is the best time to act when we can get local and national authorities on our side. But how best to get rid of plastic?? Any ideas? I am sure if we all put our heads together then acted we could at least make a dent.
Do we lobby MP's and ask them to make a new law making companies liable for the amount that ends up in landfil or on our streets?
Do we send back our packaging to the companies who decided to wrap up our products?
Do we write to packaging companies and get them to change?
Do we do all of these and more??
Could be good to come up with a catch name, a logo and some other ideas on getting rid of packaging. So what you reckon?
