Supermarkets including Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’s have shared plans to become more sustainable. Morrisons has also introduced a way to do this while cutting back on food waste.
Through the Too Good To Go app, customers have been able to rescue the products and put the food to use.
So far, Morrisons has created around 250,000 bags which has saved 625 tonnes of CO2e.
All surplus foods can be found on the Too Good To Go app.
Customers can search what food is available in their area from restaurants, cafes or supermarkets like Morrisons.
To celebrate the environmentally-friendly partnership continuing, Morrisons gave shoppers a chance to win.
Golden tickets were randomly placed into the bags and included vouchers from money to spend at Morrisons to a year’s supply of To Good To Go vouchers.
Shoppers who have used the bags have shared their thoughts on social media.
One wrote: “@Morrisons another amazing magic bag from your Loughton branch today.”
Another stated: “Collected my first ever @TooGoodToGo_UK magic bag from @Morrisons today (the only one of five supermarkets in Devizes on the app so hurrah to them).”
The bags can hold up to 16kg worth of groceries and shoppers are encouraged to reuse them.
Making the change cut back on how many bags customers purchased by 25 percent, Morrisons stated.
Group Customer and Marketing Director at Morrisons Andy Atkinson previously said: “We are taking another meaningful step that will remove an estimated 1,300 tonnes of plastic out of the environment each year.
“Our customers have told us that reducing plastic is their number one environmental concern so introducing the paper bag across the nation will provide another way of reducing the plastic in their lives.”
