Aldi has eliminated plastic packaging from its own-label four-pack beer and cider products.

The plastic shrink wrap and rings have been replaced with a cardboard alternative, reducing plastic waste by approximately 95 tonnes annually.

This change is part of Aldi’s commitment to minimising its environmental impact and exploring alternative packaging solutions.

Luke Emery, Plastics and Packaging Director at Aldi, said: “Minimising plastic waste is important to both Aldi and our customers and we are always looking for ways to adapt our packaging.

“Moving our beer and cider to card packaging is another step in our fight against unwanted plastic.”
