News: Dutch company launches 'world's first plastic-free aisle' in test for Theresa May's proposal

Dutch shopping chain Ekoplaza has launched a plastic-free pop-up store in Amsterdam. Products sold include meat, rice, sauces, dairy, chocolate, cereals, fruit and vegetables. The aisle includes conventional packaging materials such as cardboard, glass and metal, but also introduces biodegradable replacements for plastic.

Campaign group A Plastic Planet has called for British supermarkets to introduce plastic-free aisles rapidly. The Prime Minister announced earlier this year that plastic-free aisles would be part of measures to tackle plastic waste.
