    M&S confirms huge packaging shake-up affecting cleaning and home products – see full list

    Marks and Spencer is launching a trial of refillable cleaning and laundry products as part of its plans to tackle plastic waste.

    The posh supermarket says the products available include cleaning sprays, laundry detergents, fabric conditioners and washing up liquids.

    Customers will need to pay an initial £2 deposit for a reusable bottle, with a range of 500ml, 750ml and 1L sizes on offer.

    These can then be returned to store after you’ve finished with them, in return for a £2 voucher that can be used against a second purchase in the M&S Refillable range.

    All returned bottles, made with durable materials to reduce damage and waste, will be cleaned and refilled before they’re made available to buy again in stores.

    M&S is introducing the scheme in six stores originally

    Cleaning spray and washing-up liquid bottles will also include a fully recyclable spray trigger or pump that can be recycled at home or returned back to M&S.

    M&S says its latest refillable offering, which includes eight products and is delivered in partnership with Re, will be available initially in its recently opened Stevenage store and in Bluewater.

    It will then be extended to an additional four stores – Stratford City, Hedge End, Aintree and York Vangarde Retail Park – over the summer.

    M&S Refillable follows on from the supermarket’s packaging-free Fill Your Own concept, which was launched in December 2019 and sees customers fill up tubs of loose produce to save on plastic waste.

    This scheme alone is estimated to have removed 350,000 units of single-use packaging.

    Now available in fourteen stores, customers have a choice of over 60 refillable grocery products, with products including pasta, rice, cereal and nuts.

    Lucinda Langton, head of sustainability at M&S Food, said: “At M&S, we want to help our customers live more sustainably by transforming how we sell our products.

    “We know they care deeply about reducing plastic so we’re taking a test and learn approach to find innovative solutions. Our homecare trial builds on our refillable and packaging-free Fill Your Own concept, and both are important parts of our strategy to reduce plastic and packaging.

    "Fill Your Own has already been hugely popular – showing there is high demand for refillable great value options – and if customers love M&S Refillable just as much, we’ll be rolling it out to more stores.”

    M&S has committed to remove one billion units of plastic food packaging by 2027 and has already removed 75 million units from across its food business in the past year.
