Sainsbury’s launches refillable handwash pouches

Sainsbury’s has launched refillable pouches for its own-brand handwash.

The supermarket said the one litre pouches use 85% less plastic and will help customers to reduce the amount of plastic waste in their homes by reusing their handwash bottle and refilling it from the pouch.

Sainsbury’s estimates that the products will save a total of 28 tonnes of plastic every year and are 35% lower in cost compared to the equivalent bottles. 

Once used, the pouches can be recycled at Sainsbury’s front-of-store flexible plastics recycling points, which are available in all of the retailer’s UK supermarkets.

Sainsbury’s has committed to halving its own brand plastic packaging by 2025. Recent moves towards this goal have included removing its five pack of Fairtrade bananas from a plastic bag to a paper band. In addition, the retailer will  be switching its double strength squash bottles to quadruple strength squash bottles to save 177 tonnes of plastic.
