Over the last three years, Carrefour Spain has halved the amount of plastic used in the packaging of fruit and vegetables.

As a result of the success in the venture, the retailer will pack more products using other materials, such as cardboard, netting, and biodegradable packaging.

The Spanish arm of the retail giant has cut out more than 1,000 tonnes of plastic in the past three years.

Some examples of plastic packaging reduction include eliminating plastic from 70% of its vegetables packaging, 100% of the packaging used for Carrefour Spain citrus fruits (for products weighing up to 1.5 kilograms), and for 80% of its own-brand grapes.
