Retail, Consumer Goods and Lifestyle

This Dutch supermarket now has an aisle with no plastic packaging

People shop in a market in Riga February 19, 2009. More and more farmers are starting to sell their products direct to the public in local markets in order to get a better price as their incomes have collapsed during the financial crisis. Farmers also want to avoid using the supermarket chains and food processors, which drive their prices down.    REUTERS/Ints Kalnins (LATVIA)
