I PLEDGE TO LEAVE POINTLESSLY PACKAGED FRUIT AND VEG ON THE SHELF.

We're showing big supermarkets all over the world that if they want to sell their fruit and veg, they can't cover it in plastic. By leaving these products on the shelves, we're sending supermarkets a message they can't ignore. 

When you sign our pledge we'll send you heaps of tips on how to get your hands on fresh fruit and veg without the packaging. 

Will you take the pledge?

WE'RE LEAVING POINTLESSLY PACKAGED FRUIT AND VEG ON THE SHELVES. ARE YOU WITH US?

On average, each of us throws away about 200kg of packaging each year. That’s 200kg of packaging that’s going to outlive all of us. We need to cut that number down, and a good place to start is with fruit and veg that doesn’t need packaging in the first place. Since when do our bananas need a second layer of packaging, or cucumbers, (which we’re meant to wash anyway) just so that they don’t get touched by someone else?

Let's send big supermarkets all over the world a message that they're forced to act on. If they try to sell us fruit and veg that’s pointlessly packaged, we’re going to leave it on the shelf and they won’t make money.
