Zero waste shop wins award as ‘Blue Planet’ effect grows

A zero waste shop won an ethical business award in Wales on Wednesday night, highlighting a growing trend among retailers to cut plastic use as worry over its environmental impact rises.

Judges praised Natural Weigh in south Wales for educating people about the dangers of single-use plastic and for providing a solution to minimise its use – by asking customers to bring their own containers to buy food by weight.
