Calling supermarkets to PACK IT IN

17 April 2018

Youth groups have launched PACK IT IN a campaign to reduce plastic packaging in supermarkets.

Youth groups calling on supermarkets to reduce plastic packaging

Plastic food packaging is a major cause of pollution in our world today.
 
The manufacture and disposal of this packaging is increasing climate change at home and overseas, driving hunger and instability across the developing world. 

PACK IT IN is calling for supermarkets to:

1. Make more loose fruit and veg available in their stores
2. Replace their plastic packaging with more sustainable options
3. Provide recycle areas at the checkout for customers 
 
The groups are running Pack It In campaigns in their local areas to raise awareness about climate change and the need for us all to live more sustainably. 
Check out www.facebook.com/trocaireireland for updates. 
 
The Pack it in campaign was created by Youth Work Ireland Meath, SWAN youth service – CDYSB Dublin 1, CAPE – Youth Work Ireland Galway and Unforgettable Womens Network Dublin.
