Waitrose ends use of plastic on multi-buy tins

Published 21st Sep 2020

Waitrose has announced it is permanently ditching plastic wrapping on all its multi-buy grocery tins after a successful trial to remove the shrink wrap.

Removing the plastic wrap, which is used to keep three or four cans together for shoppers’ convenience but which is hard to recycle, will save 45 tonnes of plastic waste a year, the supermarket said.

Waitrose tested the removal last year, and it will now be taken off all the retailer’s canned grocery goods including baked beans, kidney beans, sweetcorn, chopped tomatoes and tuna.
