BOOTHS Booths get drastic over plastic

Regional food and drink retailer Booths is also taking practical steps to dramatically reduce the amount of plastic used in the business.

Moves include only offering free hot drinks to card holders who bring a reusable cup with them, recycling collection points in store for disposable coffee cups, phasing out single use plastic bags, loose produce bags and plastic straws, offering new “bags for life” made from 90% recycled plastic and reducing the thickness of the film gauge in packaging.
