New Tetley Tin Features in Tesco Loop Trial

What have we done?

Our mission to eliminate single use packaging has taken a big step forward with the introduction of a new reusable Tetley tin.

In a first for the UK, the new Tetley tins, containing 80 biodegradable tea bags, will be available in 10 Tesco stores as part of a trial to introduce the ‘Loop Zero Waste’ system into supermarkets and convenience stores.

Stores participating in the Loop reuse trial:


What’s Loop About?

Put simply, Loop is the new wave in sustainable shopping and is worth a look. 

For this trial, you would go to the reuse station in one of the participating Tesco outlets and add the Tetley tin to your shopping. Take it home and enjoy, and when the tin is empty return it to the special collection point in Tesco. From there, it will be collected by Loop to be washed and refilled ready to return to store for sale.


The price of the tea includes a deposit for the tin which gets paid back to your Loop account when you return it.  All you need to do is download the Loop Deposit App from the Apple app Store or Google Play.
