Members, Join In! Clean it. Scrunch it. Co-op it. Hero

Members told us they wanted more action on plastics and worked with us to develop our new soft plastics recycling units. Thanks to their input, everyone can now recycle soft plastics, like crisp packets and bread bags, at a Co-op in their community. Members also asked us for shareable resources to support them in getting the word out - so here they are.

Supporting brilliant local projects

Find out more about how we can make a difference together, for example through Community Fridges. These are spaces that give communities a place to meet, share food, learn new things and reduce waste. Thanks to our partnership with Hubbub, we’re adding 350 new fridges across the UK, but we need your help in making the most of them.
