BBC campaign urges viewers to return plastic packaging to supermarkets #OurPlasticFeedback

By on Wednesday, June 26, 2019

BBC One’s War On Plastic is calling for citizens to speak out against plastic packaging in UK supermarkets by joining #OurPlasticFeedback campaign.

Presenters Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Anita Rani made a stirring plea asking the public to write their feedback on packaging and return it to supermarkets to highlight the threat that single-use plastics pose to the environment.

Several famous faces are involved including Sir David Attenborough, Mary Berry and Prue Leith.

The campaign was launched following the final episode of BBC One’s three-part series, War On Plastic.

    Whilst I understand that there is an argument for packaging for some foodstuffs and suitable alternatives to plastics are being researched, I fail to understand why multi-packs of cans of baked beans etc. need to be shrink wrapped. The checkouts are able to deal with the discounts on multi-buys so surely this use of very thick plastic is completely unnecessary.

    There must be other examples like this that could be eradicated at a stroke surely,

    30.6.19 I took my plastic packaging back to Sainsbury’s in Watford, Albert Road and they didn’t know anything about the campaign and sadly I was the only person to take any plastic back! Such a shame no one else has bothered. Had a good discussion with the store who were going to pass on my concerns.
