Our compostable carrier bags are currently in over 1,000 Co-ops, but to help reduce the use of single-use plastic bags, we want them in more! We’re calling on UK Government and English Local Authorities to speed up the rollout of food collections.
Environment Manager, Iain Ferguson shares our latest innovation in our commitment to reduce single-use plastic in Co-op stores and packaging.
We’re committed to making 100% of our packaging easy to recycle by 2023 and reducing the amount of plastic waste.
We’re trialling a landmark plastic bottle deposit and return scheme at music festival Co-op pop-up shops this summer. Find out more from Iain our Environment Manager.
In a UK first, we’re switching all Co-op branded bottled water to 50% recycled plastic. That’s recycling #TheCoopWay.
