Sustainability is a real buzzword at the moment and with the stark reality of climate change now being a regular headline in the news across the globe it is exciting to see plans developing to reduce waste by numerous retailers.

This looks like an interesting concept and Asda's commitments are notable. It will be interesting to see the take up of the concept- particularly how, for example 'click and collect' orders will be fulfilled- perhaps we will see returnable containers going forward- I know I often turn up at the supermarket and have to purchase another 'bag for life'- perhaps further change will mean even bigger consumer buy-in!
