Marks & Spencer rolls out Refilled scheme to a further 19 stores
Marks & Spencer is rolling out its Refilled scheme to a further 19 stores following a successful trial in an initial six shops last year.
Operated in partnership with Reposit, the scheme allows customers to refill the retailer’s own-brand cleaning and laundry products as part of its commitment to reduce and remove plastic packaging.
Shoppers can choose from 10 pre-filled, own-brand homecare products, including cleaning sprays, laundry detergents, fabric conditioners and washing-up liquids. The initial purchase includes a £2 cost for the returnable bottle, which can be returned to an M&S store after use. On the return, customers are given a £2 voucher which can be redeemed against a second purchase in the M&S Refilled range.
M&S said over 10,000 customers have engaged with the scheme to date. The retailer targeting the removal of one billion units of plastic packaging by 2027 as it works towards becoming net zero by 2040.
Lucinda Langton, head of sustainability at M&S Food, said: “At M&S, we want to support our customers live more sustainably. We know they care deeply about us reducing plastic packaging and are continuing to look for ways they can make small changes in their everyday lives.
“Our Refilled scheme has proven hugely popular – showing there is high demand for refillable and great value options – so we’re delighted to be able to introduce this into even more of our stores across the UK this month.”
