As a food retailer, we know we depend on a healthy planet to produce the products our customers enjoy and want to buy from sustainable and ethical supply chains. We want to lead on reducing our carbon, plastic pollution and food waste footprint.
David Potts, CEO of Morrisons, said: "The pandemic has had a significant effect on the people of our country. But it has also had a significant effect on the production of waste and a detrimental effect on our countryside and wildlife. We need to work together to clean up. We felt it was our duty to join forces with The Sun and ReWorked to provide facemask recycling facilities and hope the public will make full use of this great initiative."
