A Harvesters takeaway offer is coming under fire for its low-balling the chances of recycling.
The firm’s “reward” for recycling involves letting customers return a bottle of shampoo and conditioner, but the offer has been criticized by campaigners, who say that it is “not fair”.
According to the retailer’s website, customers are entitled to return any bottles they want after a 10-year period.
But it states that they can only return bottles if they return them in a box or in a bag, which is a non-refundable item.
The offer has angered campaigners, many of whom have called for the firm to offer an alternative reward.
“The HarvesTER is not fair at all, which means we don’t have a reward for taking part in this campaign, and it is not a fair offer to the consumer,” said David Saffron, senior campaigner at campaign group Solidarity.
“If they are going to offer a reward, they should offer it to the same consumer.”
“The problem is that this company has already done the wrong thing, which has been to offer this ‘rewards’ scheme in the first place,” he added.
“They should be offering an alternative scheme.”
A Harvestering spokesman said that the company “never offers reward packages for bottles that have been used more than 10 years.”
“It’s not a reward scheme at all,” the company said in a statement.
“There is a 10 year period from when the bottle was last used and we always keep the bottle on the premises for 10 years and give a discount on any return.”
There is no such thing as a returnable bottle, but there is no guarantee that it will not be returned,” the statement added.
In its statement, the firm also said that its “rewards” offer had been “designed to give the customer a competitive advantage, while also offering a refund if they choose to return the bottle”.”
It is our policy to refund the purchase price after 10 consecutive returns, and customers who have been returned to us by mistake can choose to exchange the bottle for another bottle,” it added.”
This is an offer that has been developed for the benefit of our customers.
“The company’s “special offer” for customers returning a bottle can only be accessed online.
The website states that customers can “return their bottles to us via our return delivery service”.”
For our customers, our special offer is not available to customers who are returning a package that has already been returned, or to customers returning their package by mistake,” it said.”
It can only happen online via the special offer, so we can only offer this offer to customers in the UK.
“The “special offers” offer comes as recycling and waste management campaigner Caroline Walker told the BBC that people are often “in the dark” about the possibility of recycling and other waste management products.”
They’re often in the dark about what’s actually in their bags.””
People have no idea what’s in their recycling.
They’re often in the dark about what’s actually in their bags.”
The campaign group, which campaigns on issues of recycling, said that this was a “big problem” and said that people should be “willing to give up a lot of stuff” in order to recycle.
“That’s the sort of thing we’re really worried about,” Walker said.
