Our plastics plan

We’re doing all we can to reduce the amount of plastic we use, like cutting our carrier bag usage, removing the plastic covers from our cashmere jumpers and swapping plastic straws for paper ones in M&S Cafés. By 2022, all our plastic packaging will be easy to recycle

Cruelty-free beauty

Sustainable seafood

At M&S, we care about where our fish comes from, whether it’s the prawns in our sandwiches or our ready-to-eat fish pies. We’ve had a strict sustainable sourcing policy in place for over 20 years and can trace all our fish back to where it’s caught or farmed

We’ve come a long way since we introduced our first Fairtrade product in 2004. By buying a bunch of our Fairtrade roses, you can help support growers to get better prices, decent working conditions, local sustainability and fair terms of trade
