Our Little Helps

Brushing for change

Simply by changing the packaging of our Tesco Own Brand (TOB) adult toothbrushes, has been able to reduce over 400kg of unrecyclable plastics within the short period of five months. The packaging change, which took place in October 2019 was also in direct support of the Group's ambitions of having TOB packaging be fully recyclable by 2030.

This is not the first time that a simple change in TOB packaging has resulted in the reduction of waste to landfills. In fact, by changing our TOB whole chicken, we were able to remove 25,000 single-use plastic bags to our seas per day.

There will be more TOB products repackaging in the future, so be sure to check them out in our stores.
