The majority of us use way too much plastic, but it is unavoidable when food is heavily wrapped up in plastic.
Fruit and vegetables are the best place to start when you want to go plastic-free.
Now Pick n Pay (PnP) has launched a nude fruit and vegetable produce wall in 13 selected stores.
This means you'll be able to grab and go without getting twisted in reams of plastic, the next time you're in the fruit and veg section.
But, paper bags are available to customers at the nude produce wall to complete their plastic-free greengrocer-inspired shop.
For a more sustainable option you could buy PnP’s new reusable netted fruit & vegetable fresh produce bag which will cost you R7,50.
Alternatively, just take along your own transparent, sealable, reusable bag when you're buying loose produce.
Fruit and veg is seasonal but these are the items you can expect at the produce wall:
- Brown steak mushrooms
- Portabellini mushrooms
- Red and green chillies
- Cocktail tomatoes
- Sweet Palermo peppers
- Baby brinjals
- Green beans
- Sweet corn
- Baby cabbage
Take note that this is a trial. If the response is positive the retailer will expand this across its stores, nationwide.
