Went to the market stall to avoid the bananas in plastic bags in M and S and before I could produce my cloth bag the guy had whisked the bananas into a plastic bag! Explained to him what I was doing and why it was important to reduce plastic. He helpfully told me if I felt bad I could burn the bag when I got home!!
Bought a pizza base and a water filter jug, both in cardboard boxes, so dismayed to find they had hidden plastic inner wrappings. WHY?!
Finally bought some Malteasers as a gift (as they are Fairtrade) but they too had a plastic wrapping! Again why? The boxes are sealed, isn’t that good enough?
