Supermarket chain Aldi has removed 2 million pieces of plastic from its Easter range.

The company has made alterations to six of its Easter lines, making them 100% plastic free.

In total, 29 tonnes of plastic packaging have been removed.

To combat excess packaging, the retailer has made some of its Easter eggs with a square-shaped bottom, meaning they no longer require plastic support underneath.

It has also changed the use of plastic windows on its packaging to a cellulose film equivalent, made from wood fibres.

The supermarket is on track to have all product packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable by the end of 2025.
