Nelson supermarket cuts plastic for paper

From Morning Report, 8:40 am on 18 May 2018

A Nelson supermarket is stepping up the war on plastic by cutting out it out completely in the fruit and vegetables and the bulk bins. From next month shoppers at Fresh Choice Nelson will be offered only paper bags for their produce purchases. And the Warehouse Group has also just announced it will no longer single-use plastic bags at checkouts. From the end of the year plastic bags will be replaced with fully compostable bags and profit from the sales of those bags will go to charity.
