Sainsbury’s To Cut Plastic By 50%

Stuart Pritchard September 13, 2019

Sainsbury’s will tomorrow announce plans to cut plastic by 50% by 2025.

Louise Edge, head of Greenpeace UK’s ocean plastics campaign, said: “Last year we ranked UK supermarkets on their plastic policies and Sainsbury’s came last in the league table.

“This commitment from Sainsbury’s to cut plastic by 50% by 2025 is a victory for the tens of thousands of customers who lobbied them to do better on plastic.

“We commend Sainsbury’s for listening and recognising that huge plastic reduction and bringing in refillable packaging at scale are vital to tackling the plastic pollution crisis.

“Sainsbury’s should prioritise these solutions rather than switching to other types of throwaway packaging and we stand ready to help them achieve this ambitious goal.”
