Lidl UK says it will remove black plastic from its entire fruit and vegetable range by the end of the month.

Black plastic packaging is not recyclable in the UK, as it cannot be detected by the sorting systems used for plastic recycling, and the supermarket chain says its move will save an estimated 50 tonnes of black plastic waste a year.

It also plans to remove black plastic from its fresh meat, fish and poultry range by August next year, it announced on Friday.
