Sainsbury’s to introduce refillable packaging to cut plastic waste

Sainsbury’s could sell milk and fizzy drinks in returnable glass bottles as part of a drive to halve the amount of plastic packaging it uses over the next six years.

The UK’s second largest supermarket uses nearly 120,000 tonnes of plastic packaging a year and is pledging to slash that figure by 50% by 2025, with its own label and branded grocery products coming under scrutiny. In 2018 the retailer reduced plastic packaging by 1%.
