Aldi stops selling disposable barbecues

Aldi has stopped selling disposable barbecues in its stores as it looks to protect the UK’s forests and wildlife.

Liz Fox, corporate responsibility director at Aldi UK, explained: “We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and know that many of our shoppers are increasingly looking to do the same.

“We hope customers can embrace our latest move and still want them to enjoy their summer picnics and barbecues. As an alternative, we would encourage customers to opt for more environmentally friendly and sustainable options such as mini portable barbecues, ensuring they are used responsibly.”

Aldi stopped selling disposable barbecues last June at its Buxton store, which is close to the Peak District National Park. The move is now being extended across all Aldi stores.

Amanda Craig, director of people and Nature at Natural England, said: “We welcome any step that helps people act more responsibly whilst enjoying the countryside, and encourage everyone to follow the Countryside Code when spending time outdoors. This includes only using BBQs in places where signs specify they are permitted to better protect people, property and wildlife.”

The supermarket has been carbon neutral since January 2019 and is also on track for all its own-label product packaging to be recyclable, reusable or compostable by the end of 2022.
