Recyclable packaging "could be reality" in five years

Article Type: Food Facts From: Nutrition & Food Science, Volume 38, Issue 3.

Recyclable packaging could be the only type of packaging supermarkets sell in five years times, if Green Alliance is successful in its new campaign. The Lobby group has proposed that all retailers should only use recyclable packaging by 2013 to help consumers make positive environmental choices. Supported by Marks and Spencer and Sainsbury's head of print and packaging at the latter firm Stuart Lendrum commented on the importance of the goal. The Green Alliance aims to promote sustainable development by working with British businesses and the government.
