Commenting on Waitrose committing to remove fruit and vegetable plastic bags by spring 2019, Dr Lyndsey Dodds, Head of UK Marine Policy at WWF said:

"This move shows that if customers demand change like stamping out pointless plastics, businesses will rise to the challenge. But we can’t stop now – our throwaway culture means 8 million tonnes of plastic is dumped in the ocean every year. We need to see other businesses follow this lead and the UK Government ban avoidable single use plastic by 2025"
