From August, fresh water stands will be available in the cafes. Sainsbury’s already offers 25p off hot drinks across all cafes when customers bring reusable cups.
The retailer has also announced that customers can now bring their own reusable containers to fresh and deli counters for meat, fish, cheese and deli products. This will be clearly signposted on the counters.
Sainsbury’s chief executive Mike Coupe said:“Our customers want to use less plastic so I am determined that Sainsbury’s continues to find ways to help them do that. Allowing customers to refill their own water bottles and re-use food containers is further evidence of our commitment to reduce unnecessary plastic waste.”
