How to Complain About Excess Packaging
If you spot an item which you think has excessive packaging you can complain about it, which should encourage the manufacturer to look into reducing their packaging.
You can complain in the following ways:
- Write to the supermarket or manufacturer to complain, asking why they are using so much packaging.
- Contact Trading Standards or Consumer Direct who can investigate your complaint. Trading Standards will also be able to consider if the packaging is deliberately misleading in making you think there is more product in the pack than there actually is.
