// Co-op will trial 100% compostable wrappers in pop-up store at Glastonbury Festival
// The pop-up store will sell bottled water in recyclable aluminium cans & refillable bottles
// The retailer will also sell sandwiches packed in 100% compostable packaging
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.
