Greenpeace has organized a ranking for the Spanish supermarkets basing on their use of plastic generally. The results were as following:
Eroski, with a 6.2 of note over 10, Aldi, with 5.6, and Mercadona, with 5.1, these were the supermarkets most committed to curbing the excessive use of plastic for single use in their establishments. On the other hand, el Corte Inglés is the one that had the worst ranking, with a 3.4, in a ranking elaborated by Greenpeace according to its plastic footprint.
The classification measures the commitments that eight brands have transmitted to the environment to reduce pollution. The rest of the analyzed supermarkets need to improve: Lidl has a 4.7; Dia, 4.6; Carrefour, 4.2, and Alcampo, 3.5, the lowest in the ranking, in addition to El Corte Inglés.
It should be recalled that Lidl eliminated plastic bags in its supermarkets in the Balearic Islands last May, and announced last week (after the ranking) that it will eliminate all single-use plastic items (plastic tableware, drinking straws or cotton buds). cotton for the ears).
