Superdrug opens most sustainable store to date
Superdrug has opened its most sustainable store to date at the Peterborough Serpentine Green shopping centre.
The new shop features fully recyclable signage including graphics produced from recycled yarn and plastic bottles. In addition, its ceiling tiles are made from bio-soluble mineral wool, clay and starch and are 100% recyclable. Superdrug has also reduced the number of LED Mod lights in the ceiling by 20%.
Nigel Duxbury, property director at Superdrug, said: “We are incredibly proud to announce the opening of our brand new Peterborough Serpentine Green store, where sustainability has been the focus of its development, construction and design from conception to reality.
“Following this year’s first ever CSR report, I’m delighted to share our dedication to our strategic Planet CSR pillar with sustainability-led design features within the store as well as stocking incredible own brand ranges that are making dedicated eco-conscious changes to their products.
“The team at Superdrug look forward to expanding on these eco-conscious changes and implementing them in further stores nationwide.”
The store also features AAA efficiency rated air conditioning and has a waste management target of 5% to landfill.
In 2020, Superdrug demonstrated its commitment to packaging change by becoming the first health and beauty retailer in the UK to join the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment.
Next year, it is planning to save more than 43 tonnes of plastic through improvements to the own-brand products that customers buy most frequently. This will include launching 100% recycled plastic bottles for its own-brand hair range and making own-brand toothpaste tubes fully recyclable and all wipes biodegradable.
