Morrisons trials rentable boxes to make salad bars greener

Morrisons is piloting new rentable boxes for its salad bar in four supermarkets.

Called Refill a Box, the scheme is the first of its kind to be trialled by a UK supermarket and includes Morrisons large salad boxes being replaced with a rentable box made from fully recyclable polypropylene. The boxes are designed to be used 400 times.

To use the new boxes, customers must first download the CauliBox app, register, tap on ‘scan to take a box’ and insert their card details. They can then scan the QR code on the salad bar point-of-sale to enable them to collect an empty box from a salad bar colleague, fill it with salad products, then pay at the till as usual.

Customers are asked to return the boxes to Refill a Box drop-off point when the QR code will be scanned again. The used box will then be thoroughly machine washed and sanitised, before being returned to the pick-up point for another use. A £5 deposit is held whilst customers usse the box which is refunded when it is returned within seven days.

Lorraine Wheeler, environmental packaging manager at Morrisons, said: “Thousands of customers visit our salad bars every week – and this is increasing as people go back out to work. Until now we’ve stocked recyclable single-use plastic containers, but we think customers will be ready to swap to this reusable box – as it’s so simple to use. We hope to roll it out to more stores this year.”
