Supermarkets have been rated in a league table of how much of their packaging can be recycled.
Nearly a third of packaging has been found to be either difficult to recycle, or cannot be recycled at all.
The survey was carried out by consumer group Which? - it bought 27 popular own-brand items and tested the packaging.
Lidl was found to be the worst for recycling packaging. Morrisons came out the best.
Here is the league table of supermarket and the percentage of packaging which is can be widely recycled:
Morrisons - 81%
Asda - 79%
M&S - 78%
Tesco - 77%
Aldi - 76%
Waitrose - 75%
Sainsbury’s - 75%
Ocado - 74%
Iceland - 73%
Lidl - 71%
Would you change where you do your food shopping based on how much packaging can be recycled?
