I have one near me so I tend to visit more often then I think is ideal. here are some of the products they do;
Paper bin liners
All kinds of oil in glass bottles
Big tins of vegetable oil
Tescos sell bulk pasta in polythene bags – not plastic free I know but better than film!
I have not seen these myself but know a woman who has.
Here are some packaging less products from Louises Bayfield and her “POSTIVE PRODUCTS LIST (UK) a list of High Street and Supermar-ket products that have no packaging or in some way help reduce packaging.”
Bath Salts, Radox – Cardboard
Double Edge Razor Blades 10’s– Cardboard and small plastic cover
Ecover Washing Powder – Cardboard, no scoop
Fish Fingers, Birds Eye 30 MSC – Big pack to save on packaging – Cardboard
Cat litter, Sanicat Eco – I believe this is in a paper bag
Tea Bags Miles West Country Tea – Paper bag, can anyone confirm that this is not laminated?
If you want to buy loose you will need to take your own reusable packaging – produce bags, tupperware even compostable disposables. You can find them here.
For the plastic free freak metal lids to glass jars are of course plastic lined .
Tin and cans including those for cosmetics are also plastic lined
For products that are packaged in plastic choose to buy simple plastics that can easily be recycled
Links are to my posts on the subject.
Do remember not all stores stock all products. It might be wise to check ahead if you are making a special visit.
