Tesco has announced that it has removed soft plastic rings and shrink wrap packaging from all beers and ciders in its UK stores.

The eco-friendly move, made in collaboration with a number of leading drinks producers, will lead to 50 million fewer pieces of un-recycled plastic each year.

The move, which Tesco claims is a first among major UK retailer, is part of its ongoing 4Rs (Remove, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) strategy set up to remove excess and non-recyclable material from its business and recycle the rest.
