Aldi to remove plastic egg packaging
Aldi is to remove plastic packaging from its entire egg range by the end of the year.
The supermarket is switching from plastic packaging to pulp trays on its remaining egg lines as part of its pledge to halve the volume of plastic packaging used by 2025.
Richard Gorman, plastics and packaging director at Aldi, said: “We are proud to be amongst the first to commit to cutting plastic packaging from our entire egg range. We have a responsibility to provide customers with environmentally-sustainable options and it’s changes like this that help to make a difference. We’ve set ambitious targets to reduce our environmental impact over the next few years and so it’s now up to us to continue to step up our efforts to achieve these.”
Aldi has also revealed that it is on track to have all own-label products as recyclable, reusable or compostable by 2022, and branded products by 2025.
