Aldi has announced that it will limit the use of plastic by removing sanitary napkins packaging and its fruit and vegetable departments in its UK stores. A novelty that could soon happen at home.
Aldi will remove the plastic packaging from these rolls of toilet paper to limit the consumption of plastic. By replacing plastic packaging with recycled paper, Aldi estimates that it can save up to 935 tonnes of plastic a year. These packages could then be extended to kitchen towels.
The store chain had already announced plans to remove plastic packaging from its fruit and vegetable shelf. “We are committed to ensuring that our packaging does not become waste,” said Fritz Walleczek.
