Supermarket chain Asda has opened a refill store in Toryglen, Glasgow, selling over 60 products sold loose and unpackaged within specific aisles.

The initiative is part of Asda’s strategy to remove 3 billion pieces of single use plastic from its business by 2025 and encourage customers to shop more sustainability. Shoppers can use their own containers to buy unpackaged products such as coffee, cereals, pasta, rice and tea or alternatively buy a reusable container in store and use this. The refill proposition is due to be rolled out to Milton Keynes and York stores by the end of 2021.
