There’s a supermarket in the Netherlands that has removed plastic packaging in its grocery items.
Now This Future takes you to Ekoplaza in Amsterdam where you’ll find the entire supermarket aisle completely plastic-free.
They don’t use plastic in over 700 grocery items found in the supermarket. Customers are able to buy groceries in glass, metal and cardboard containers or in new biodegradable materials.
They have a biofilm packaging that looks like plastic but is made from trees and plants that can break down within 12 weeks using a home composter.
According to Now This Future, 300 million tons of plastic are produced globally every year. Only 10 percent of this are recycled, with garbage ending up in waterways or sitting in landfills.
Ekoplaza’s move can make a big impact on the environment.
It also sets an example for other supermarkets all over the world to follow.
