New World, a supermarket chain in New Zealand, endeavors to get rid of all single-use plastics by the end of 2018, and is experimenting with “Food in the Nude” project that features redesigned shelves to store fruits and vegetables in open.

The supermarket is also offering two million reusable bags for free, which will earn the customers a five percent rebate every time they are used in the store, an initiative that has already squeezed plastic bag use by 20 percent, writes Green Matters

The idea of displaying food items sans polluting plastic packaging is simple but one with the power to make a sizeable difference if adopted universally, notes Inhabitat
