Aldi removes plastic from multi-pack beans
Aldi is removing plastic shrink wrap from its multipacks of its Corale baked beans as kit looks to further reduce plastic waste.
The move will prevent 78 tonnes of single-use plastic from going to landfill each year.
Richard Gorman, plastics and packaging director at Aldi, said: “Removing unnecessary plastic from our multipack of beans is another step forward in our commitment to reduce plastic across our ranges.
“We know it’s becoming increasingly important to our customers that their everyday products are environmentally-friendly, and we’re pleased that this move will help them shop more sustainably.”
The supermarket will also be trialling the removal of the outer plastic wrap for its sweetcorn mini packs in a number of stores over the summer, but will still offer shoppers a multipack discount when they buy four tins. If successful, the initiative will remove a further 24 tonnes of plastic from circulation per year.
Aldi has committed to having the volume of plastic packaging it uses by 2025, which will see it remove 74,000 tonnes of plastic from circulation.
