Last week a group of about 25 customers at the Tesco’s branch in Keynsham, near Bath, took the wrapping off their groceries and left them at the tills for the supermarket to deal with.

The organiser of the protest, Tony Mitchell said “three huge trollies” were filled with unnecessary plastic.

Tesco said it was “absolutely committed to reducing plastic packaging”, BBC reported. Mitchell said the group would be hitting the local Sainsbury’s and Waitrose next.

“We’re absolutely committed to reducing plastic packaging and would be happy to meet with these local campaigners as we develop our plans to make all our packaging fully recyclable or compostable by 2025,” a spokesperson said.
