The Co-op Group has announced a switch to 100% own-brand recyclable packaging, alongside the largest-ever UK-wide scheme to recycle plastic film.

The retailer has banned black plastic packaging – which cannot be recycled, because it doesn’t reflect light and can’t be sorted by optical scanners – from all of its products. By this summer, it says it will phase out all non-recyclable plastics and replace them with those that can be reused or easily recycled.
