Zero-waste Refill Service Launches in the UK

In partnership with Tesco, TerraCycle has launched its pilot zero-waste shopping platform, Loop, in the UK.

With Loop, customers can buy products in refillable packaging. They pay a deposit to ‘borrow’ the packaging which is refunded when the used packaging is returned to TerraCycle. TerraCycle will then have it professionally cleaned so it can be reused.  Customers can complete an online request for a pick-up from their home, or by dropping the packaging to one of DPD’s 2,500 collection points.

Brands signed up in the UK include Heinz, Coca Cola, Unilever, Danone and Nivea.
