The containers are from Dutch designers Royal VKB and are made from durable polypropylene and are leak proof, microwave safe, dishwasher safe, freezer safe and BPA free.
They come in five sizes - 600ml, 1-litre, 1.2-litre, 1.4-litre, 1.5-litre - and there’s also a vacuum pump, which is free with five container credits.
Coles Chief Operating Officer Greg Davis said the Coles Fresh Food Container Program is a great opportunity for customers to earn a versatile and practical reward as part of their shop.
“We know our customers want to reduce food waste for environmental and family budget reasons, and these reusable containers are a great way to keep food fresh in the fridge or pantry without the need for more single-use plastic.
Paul Klymenko, CEO of environmental organisation Planet Ark, said: “This is a great initiative by Coles to reduce food and plastic waste. When food waste ends up in landfills it produces methane – a powerful greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. By shopping wisely and storing food in air tight reusable containers we can all do our bit to help the environment and save money.”
