So you do the right thing and buy a Bord Bia approved Irish grown broccoli in an Irish owned supermarket - Superquinn. Douze points. But what the hell - it's shrink wrapped in plastic. Can someone tell the supermarkets to ditch the shed loads of packaging? As for Tesco and M&S - there are villages across the globe that could be re-built with the packaging on a single M&S ready meal. One supermarket shop in our house (rare but hey, they do happen) fills our recylcing bins to the top. I actually spend more time taking packaging from groceries and sorting it out into it's various homes than putting away the groceries. Funnily enough, I am still waiting for a supermarket to call by and collect our Wheelie bins on a Monday.
More on this in Saturday's Indo where I might just go completely mad and name everything about supermarkets that's against the interests of consumers. Let alone farmers.
