Aldi ditches plastic from own-label easter eggs

Aldi has announced that it has removed plastic from its entire range of own-label easter eggs.

This follows a redesign of the packaging which has eliminated the need for the packs to include inner plastic packaging.

The products are among nine Easter lines that Aldi has made plastic-free this year, which means it has removed an estimated 24 tonnes of plastic from its stores.

The supermarket is separately adding 10 new 100% plastic-free products to its seasonal confectionery range for 2022, including the Popcorn Egg and Ice Cream Egg.  Aldi’s entire Easter range is also now fully recyclable.

Richard Gorman, plastics and packaging director at Aldi UK, said: “We know that our customers are passionate about the environment, and these changes to our Easter range are a great example of how we are helping them eliminate unnecessary plastic. 

“We’re committed to playing our part to protect the environment and its changes like this that can make all the difference.”

The move follows on from the supermarket’s pledge to halve the volume of plastic packaging it uses by 2025. Aldi is on track to have all product packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable by the end of 2025.
