As people become more and more aware of the problems associated with single-use plastic, many retailers and stores are getting more creative in how they are eliminating the abundance of single-use plastic at their shops. For Tesco, a United Kingdom-based grocer, one solution may see obvious: They are cutting back on the plastic they use when packaging their produce. 

To launch the program, the British grocer is experimenting with a month-long trial at two of its stores; for the duration of the trial, none of the fresh fruit or vegetables will be packaged with any plastic, the Evening Standard reports.
