Tesco Starts Online Refill Trial to Combat Plastic Waste

Posted on the 21 July 2020 by Ecoexperts @TheEcoExperts

The supermarket giant has announced it is trialling in the UK where online shoppers will be able to order food and other items in reusable packaging - initially, covering 150 of the store's products, including Heinz Tomato Ketchup, Persil washing liquid, and Coca-Cola.

Tom Szaky, the chief executive of Loop, said the UK service would start off as a pilot, delivering to the UK mainland.

"The rising demand for home deliveries on the back of Covid presents a real opportunity for innovation in reusable packaging. It's great news that Tesco and Loop have seized this opportunity, and are allowing online shoppers to use refillable containers," said Louise Edge, a spokeswoman for the organisation.
