According to the African times, Tesco, Britain's largest supermarket chain, has begun to provide a new sales service: allowing customers to buy reusable packaged food, beverages, home and beauty products. This service is part of a strategy to reduce plastic waste.
Many countries in Europe attach great importance to environmental protection, so restrictions on the use of plastic products are gradually increasing. Many young people have come forward and asked supermarkets to use less plastic products.
A previous article published in the British Guardian pointed out that Britain has become the fourth largest country in plastic waste emissions in the world.
It is worth noting that some chain supermarkets in South Africa have also begun to provide such services, including food lovers market, a large food chain supermarket in South Africa that many Chinese often go to. In these chain supermarkets, you can bring your own plastic cans when you buy food, or you can choose the recyclable packaging they provide you, and the price of recyclable packaging is very cheap.
In addition, some non chain stores in South Africa also provide product packaging that can be recycled or refilled. In this way, they hope to better reduce the use of plastic products and alleviate the speed of environmental degradation.
