Changes in packaging are happening, and Woolworths are starting the review of their lines for their meat products.
This change involves replacing the old style clear plastic trays with a robust cardboard which has been covered with a film that is accepted in Redcycle’s soft plastic recycling bins.
This represents an 75% reduction in the volume of plastic! All you have to do is take the time to rinse and dry the soft plastic before you put it in your Redcycle collection.
What do you think? This change has only been made so far for their grass fed beef line but pending this change it is planned to expand it to other product lines.
Less plastic = progress, even though we prefer veggies over animal products.
