Greenpeace says Sainsbury’s is “worst” supermarket for reducing plastic waste
Greenpeace has criticised Sainsbury’s for failing to reduce the amount of plastic waste it produces.
The environmental charity has targeted the UK’s second biggest supermarket after it was found to be “the worst in class” in a 2018 survey of retailer’s plastic policies.
According to Greenpeace, Sainsbury’s has made the least progress out of the top 10 UK supermarkets, pledging to cut just 77 tonnes of plastic packaging, compared to Asda’s 6,500 tonnes and Morrison’s 3,766 tonnes.
As a result, the organisation is now calling for Sainsbury’s to set yearly plastic reduction targets, and start by eliminating unnecessary and unrecyclable plastic by 2020.
