Waitrose plans to phase out glitter
Supermarket chain Waitrose & Partners has pledged that its own label cards, wrap, crackers, tags, flowers and plants will either be glitter-free or feature an environmentally friendly alternative by Christmas 2020.
The retailer said three quarters its own label cards, wraps, crackers and tags along with half of its flowers and plants will be glitter-free this year. By next Christmas it plans to have all flowers and plants free of the product.
Tor Harris, head of CSR, health and agriculture for Waitrose & Partners, said: “Reducing the impact of plastics on the environment is something our customers care passionately about. While it’s important to eliminate the use of glitter, we’ll find other ways to make sure our products sparkle at Christmas and throughout the year.”
