We’re committed to designing waste out of our business, managing waste responsibly and tackling the issue of plastic pollution. Our approach is to reduce and reuse where possible, and, where this isn’t possible, we maximise the amount we recycle.
We have made great strides to reduce both our waste and the amount of packaging we use, including removing disposable coffee cups from our shops, introducing a plastic clothes hanger recycling process and eliminating microbeads from our products.
Waitrose & Partners has committed to make all own-brand packaging widely-recyclable, reusable or home compostable by 2023, with John Lewis & Partners working towards 2025 in line with the UK Plastics Pact.
