Ban Plastic on Fruit and Vegetables in Ireland

Climate Change is a massive problem.

What are you doing about it? In Clontuskert we want change.

One small change would be to ban plastic packaging in supermarkets.

Let's start with the Fruit and Veg Aisle. Why do we need plastic on fruit and veg at all? It already has its own natural packaging!!!

France is banning fruit and veg packaging from January 2022.

Why can't we do the same? We are calling on the Irish government and all of our supermarkets and shops. Ban plastic on fruit and veg!
