Tesco has re-surfaced a car park in Scotland by using plastic waste.
The supermarket chain has worked in partnership with MacRebur, a plastic road company, to re-surface the car park at the Tesco Extra at Cuckoo Bridge, Dumfries.
This saved over 900 kilograms of plastic from going to landfill. By using the waste plastic, the equivalent weight in fossil fuels has been saved from extraction. The carbon footprint has also been reduced by over a tonne.
