London's Thornton’s Budgens supermarket recently introduced an Unpackaged range of plastic-free products that helps consumers cut down on single-use plastic waste. Rather than purchasing products in plastic packaging, consumers are now able to use refillable containers to purchase everything from dry goods to milk, orange juice and peanut butter. In all, the Unpackaged range shares 200 products, which has the potential to minimize the amount of plastic that ends up in households, as well as landfills, waterways and places other than recycling facilities.
As well as selling a variety of edible plastic-free products, the supermarket is also introducing some personal care products like shampoo and shower gel.
Thornton’s Budgens has been working with A Plastic Planet as part of its vision to support a sustainable future.
