World's first plastic-free supermarket aisle debuts in Amsterdam

The world's first plastic-free supermarket aisle has been unveiled in Amsterdam. With nearly 700 plastic-free goods to select from at one of the branches of Ekoplaza, a Dutch supermarket chain, the aisle gives shoppers the opportunity to buy their groceries in new compostable bio-materials as well as traditional materials, such as glass, metal and cardboard. 

The initiative was done in cooperation with London-based A Plastic Planet, an environmental campaign group which advocates for a plastic-free aisle in every supermarket.

    Ekoplaza, which has 74 stores across the Netherlands, says it will roll out the aisle across all branches as soon as possible. More at CNN.
