With many people cutting down on their plastic use, there was general approval for Morrisons’ announcement that people could reuse their own clean plastic or Tupperware containers for the supermarket’s meat. But you don’t even need to leave town to reduce your plastic use – your local butcher is happy for customers to do the same.
What’s What! spoke to Andrew’s in Broseley, Ryan’s in Much Wenlock, Jackson’s in Shifnal, and Mike and Sarah’s and Beaman’s in Bridgnorth, and all said they’d be happy for people to bring their own clean, reusable containers for meat. In fact, some of the butchers said that people had been doing exactly that for some time. So keep our high streets thriving and buy your meat locally!
