Decrease the sale of single-use plastic water bottles. Instead sell metal water bottles and reusable coffee cups, and install water refill points in supermarkets. Use biodegradable packaging for own-brand products.
Why is this important?
Single-use plastic water bottles are polluting our environment as they are non-biodegradable. Studies have also shown that traces of plastic are found in the liquids they hold, which has the potential to be damaging to human health. Reusable bottles and cups can last a lifetime and save people money in the long-run. There are many alternative materials to plastic packaging that are biodegradable and just as effective.
