Plastics crisis: Sainsbury’s ditches plastic tampon applicators
No own-brand tampons will use plastic applicators as supermarket bids to ‘remove unnecessary plastic’ from its product lines

The supermarket said the move is part of its efforts to “remove unnecessary plastic” from its shelves. The sale of all its ranges that feature plastic applicators is now set to halt by the end of August.
