Marks & Spencer offers discount to shoppers bringing own lunch box

Marks & Spencer market place counter

Marks & Spencer has launched a scheme incentivising customers to bring their own reusable containers when shopping at its Market Place food-to-go counters.

M&S said it is the first big retailer to take such an initiative, designed to reduce single-use packaging.

Customers will receive a 25p discount for bringing their own containers to M&S’ 23 Market Place counters, which are typically in high-footfall city centre stores and sell 70,000 hot and cold lunches to go each week.
