More than 95% of Aldi Ireland’s own-brand products now feature recyclable packaging. The news follows the Government’s announcement that PE and PP film can now be recycled in Ireland.
Over the past two years, Aldi has worked with its Irish suppliers to introduce new, innovative, sustainable packaging solutions that has resulted in over 2,150 tonnes of virgin plastic being removed from its 148 stores nationwide. The supermarket has also replaced over 930 tonnes of non-recyclable packaging materials with recyclable alternatives since 2019.
