Our first campaign of 2019 will be Part 2 of a series of #ShoppersRevolt actions. This has been one of the most popular with the public and our action last year at Lidl was a great success.
On the 2nd February we will be targetting Sainsbury's in Green Park where we will, again, be asking the public to hand over their unwanted pointless plastic packaging along with a message to the store manager.
Currently Sainsbury's come bottom of the supermarket plastic policies league. 'Despite their huge combined plastic footprint, Aldi, Co-op, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose have no specific reduction targets for plastic packaging. And of the supermarkets that do have targets, most are moving at such a slow pace (just 5% per year) that it would take them 20 years to completely rid their shelves of throwaway plastic.' Elena Polisano - Greenpeace.
We will be meeting at 10.00 outside Sainsbury's for a briefing and the action is planned to finish at 14.00.
See you there!
