A group of about 25 customers at the supermarket in Keynsham, near Bath, ripped the wrapping off their goods and left it at the tills.

Tony Mitchell, who organised the protest, said “three huge trollies” were filled with discarded plastic.

Tesco said it was “absolutely committed to reducing plastic packaging”.

After completing their weekly shop, the protesters paid for their groceries before taking scissors to the plastic packaging and leaving it behind for the store to deal with.

This is the kind of action it takes to get these excessive plastic use stores to pay attention to what their customers really want.
