Nearly 2,000 products have become plastic-free at the supermarket in north London
A store in North London has introduced plastic-free zones.
The move - at Thornton Budgens shop in Belsize Park - is believed to be a UK first.
1,700 product lines have been made non-plastic over the past 10 weeks as part of a plan to make the supermarket as plastic-free as possible in three years.
“What we are doing is an open door for new packaging technology.”
Sian Sutherland, from A Plastic Planet, which is working with Thornton Budgens, told the Telegraph: “It’s the big brands that are like snails with their pace of change.
