The biggest retailer of Britain, Tesco will remove 4000 tons of plastic materials from 800 lines by the end of 2020.
Recently the company said it will eliminate the hardest-to-recycle materials from its own-brand products by the end of this year, eliminating over 4,000 tons of materials from 800 lines. It said it is also working with branded suppliers on this.
It also plans to remove the small plastic bags commonly used to pack loose fruit, vegetables and bakery items and replace them with paper ones.
Tesco has 3,787 stores in Britain and Ireland with 340,000 employees.
The British people have become increasingly aware of the amount of plastic they use following David Attenborough’s ‘Blue Planet II’ documentary which highlighted the dangers of plastic pollution to marine life.
