Tesco moves to recyclable paper packaging for own brand pocket tissue multi-packs
Tesco is making a big change to its popular own brand pocket tissue multi-packs by replacing the plastic packaging with recyclable paper.
Both the individual packs and the wrap around the multi-packs of Tesco’s Gentle White and Balm tissues have started moving into FSC-certified, paper packs.
The supermarket said the move will save more than 55 million pieces of soft plastic.
Tesco campaigns manager Courtney Pallett said: “Unlike boxes of tissues, the pocket version tends to be used on the go and can all too easily become litter. The new paper packaging works just as well as the old plastic wrap but is more sustainable.”
Reducing the amount of plastic used in its UK business has seen Tesco remove nearly 2.2 billion pieces of plastic since 2019.
