Supermarket giant Woolworths throws plastic packaging in groceries.

The initiative starts mid 2021 and allows shoppers to receive their groceries in reusable containers.

Items such as juice, ice, shampoo and detergent are included in the schedule – and can be returned to the store so that the packaging can be reused.

The project, called Loop, will make Woolworths work alongside TerraCycle.

Alex Holt, Managing Director of Quality, Health & Sustainability, said: & # 39; Our customers are increasingly telling us that they want products that are good for them and good for the planet.

& # 39; We are pleased to partner with innovative partners such as TerraCycle to take the lead in offering new and advanced solutions to reduce plastic waste.

& # 39; Helping bring Loop to Australia is a further step in our long-term ambition to reduce our impact on the environment and support a circular economy. & # 39;

Launched this year in New York and Paris.

The scheme will soon be introduced in Japan, Canada, Germany and the UK.

& # 39; TerraCycle is a world leader in recycling innovation. This collaboration with TerraCycle to roll out Loop nationwide is a great example for other companies.

& # 39; It is vital that both governments and the private sector play their role in reducing waste and embracing recycling solutions. I look forward to other companies taking similar initiatives. & # 39;

Customers can go to the Woolworths website to register their interest in participating in a trial of the project.
