We may have found a new role model in the zero-waste sphere. British brand Marks & Spencer have launched a three-month trial at their Tolworth, London, shop, displaying their fresh fruit and veg loose in pallets – completely plastic free. Soft fruit and berries come in compostable containers, and there are greengrocers on hand to help customers and to provide tips for reducing home food waste. They have also endeavoured not to include sell-by date stickers on individual items in a further effort to reduce waste as part of their company-wide aim to become a zero-waste business by 2025. It almost feels like a return to the good, ol’ days of paper bags and talking to actual humans when grocery shopping. Anyone else feel like doing a slow clap?
