Leading Supermarket to Introduce Plastic-Free Shopping

Waitrose have announced that they will be trialling a plastic free shopping experience

Customers will be able to bring their own containers to the Botley Road Waitrose, Oxford, to refill them with a selection of loose produce.

For a £5 deposit customers will also be given the option to borrow-a-box to take their shopping home in that they will be able to return on their next visit.

Refillable options will include dry goods such as pasta, lentils, rice and grains, a variety of frozen fruits, loose fruit and vegetables, Ecover cleaning products, and a selection of coffee, wine and beer.

Prices will be 15 per cent cheaper than the pre-packaged alternatives in the hopes that the scheme will give customers the incentive to go plastic-free.

The trial will run until the 18th August and Waitrose will welcome any customer feedback.
