Car and lorry tyres do far more harm to the environment than black plastic pots do ... we really do need to stop using them too ...

I wonder how many million metres of baling twine is kicking about the British countryside?
I work in Waitrose and nobody complained about the 5p charge for carrier bags. Most are well aware of the rationale behind it. Ditto when we stopped giving disposable cups for our free coffee scheme. Many provided their own re-usable cups long before we stopped giving away free coffees.
I agree we should reduce and in some areas eliminate plastic AND I DO ON A DAILY BASIS BY BUYING VEG AND HANDING THE PLASTIC PACKAGING TO THE CHECK OUT PERSON TO RECYCLE AT THE SUPERMARKETThe situation will be the packaging manager called to the CEO ,s office who will decide they can get away with using plastic until sales start dropping offTHE ONLY WAY TO FORCE A CHANGE IS TO STOP BUYING PLASTIC POTS...........ITS LITERALLY IN OUR HANDS
