Co-op has announced that it has banned black plastic packaging from all of its products and by the summer of 2020 it will have phased out all non-recyclable plastics and replaced them with those that can be reused or easily recycled.
The UK supermarket chain says everything from ready meal trays, crisps packets, to sandwich cartons and film, all packaging used will be easy to recycle whether via kerbside collection or a closed loop in house scheme.
The move will run in tandem with the largest ever UK-wide scheme to recycle plastic film, which local councils do not presently collect for recycling.
