As part of its commitment to eliminate plastic from its own-brand products, UK retailer The Co-operative has removed the plastic packaging from its private label Easter eggs.

The move will save over 14 tonnes of plastic, the retailer said.

It’s not the first move that the retailer has made to remove unnecessary plastic, having switched its 500ml, 750ml, one litre, and two litre own-brand still, sparkling, and flavoured water, carbonated drinks, and mixers to bottles made out of 100% recycled material.

The group aims to make 100% of its own-brand products recyclable by the end of 2021. The switch to recyclable material for its bottles will save over 1,400 tonnes of new plastic being produced each year.

Co-op will also be removing plastic forks from its food-to-go ranges, saving 59 tonnes of plastic.
