Plastic-free living herbs

IPL have supported Asda in launching a supermarket first – a range of plastic-free living herbs.

All of Asda’s living herbs, which were previously sold in a plastic pot with a plastic wrap, will be moving into a new, more sustainable container called a ‘plug’.

The plastic wrap has also been replaced by a paper sleeve to protect the herbs, making the entire product plastic-free, which will save 45.6 tonnes of plastic each year.

IPL have worked hard with our supplier to come up with this fantastic innovation, which will help to significantly reduce plastic use, without affecting the quality of the product.

The move supports Asda’s commitment to remove unnecessary plastic from its operations.

The plastic-free range will be available for seven different herbs:

  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Coriander
  • Basil
  • Mint
  • Flat Parsley
  • Curly Parsley
