The Co-op has said it will trial 100 per cent compostable wrappers for its pop-up store in Glastonbury as the festival takes place from this Wednesday.

The pop-up store will sell Co-op bottled water in recyclable aluminium cans and refillable bottles, after the festival banned the use of single-use plastic bottles this year.

The grocery retailer will also sell sandwiches packed in 100 per cent compostable packaging.

Co-op said the packaging is 100 per cent sustainable, from the base card to the transparent film and the label – which are all compostable.

Compostable rubbish bins will also be available on site at the festival.

Meanwhile, Co-op has been working with independent environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy for other music festivals such as Download, Isle of Wight, Latitude, Creamfields, Reading and Leeds.
