With a view to creating a sustainable shopping environment in and out of store, Aldi have revealed they have set a target to completely revolutionise the way they package their and sell items.
Aldi have pledged to offer 100% reusable, recyclable, or compostable packaging on all of their products by 2025.
As the world’s population becomes more and more conscious of the impact basic everyday items such as plastics and food packaging can have on the environment, the high street is shifting its practices as well.
Aldi join a host of other major retailers to help slow climate change and move us towards living cleaner and environmentally friendly lives.
The supermarket chain has produced a 10 point pledge to help tackle the issue of plastic packaging pollution.
By 2022 Aldi aim for 100% of their own label packaging to be recyclable, reusable, or compostable.
By 2025 the store aims to achieve 100% recyclable, reusable, or compostable packaging all in-store products. They have also set ambition targets to half entire packaging on all items, and 50% of their packaging to be made using recyclable materials by 2025.
These targets come on the heel of the retailer scrapping single-use plastic bags at the end of 2018 and their education programme teaching communities on the importance of waste reduction.
