Day of action against single-use plastic packaging in supermarkets

Cobh Zero Waste will be supporting the day of action by Friends of the Earth and VOICE against single-use packaging on 21 April. Click here for more details on the campaign.

We are meeting outside Aldi at 12 noon on Saturday 21 April, followed by Lidl (1215-1230) and Supervalu (1230-1), to do a “shop and drop” leaving any unwanted plastic packaging at the supermarkets.

So bring some bags and alternative containers for your shopping and then take off and leave your unwanted plastic packaging in the trolleys marked with the “Sick of Plastic” poster at the back of the shop and/or outside the shop.

We hope this will encourage supermarkets to stop using single-use plastic packaging, which is polluting our oceans and our food.
