Refill Ecover stations at Sainsbury's

Sainsbury’s has announced a new trial with refillable Ecover stations for washing off liquid and detergent.

The Ecover stations are part of the retailer's recent promise to become Net Zero by 2040.

From February 26, customers in the Harringay supermarket in Sainsbury will have the option to refill selected Ecover cleaning products with bottles that can be used up to 50 times. This can save over a million tons of plastic annually.

The refill attempt is also extended to a further 19 branches.

"Refillable packaging is just one initiative we want to test this year. It shows how a small change can make a big difference," said a Sainsbury spokesman.

"We look forward to the feedback from the process to help it spread across the property if successful."

The study is the latest in a series of store initiatives aimed at reducing, reusing, or replacing plastic throughout business operations, and reducing CO2 emissions.
