Aldi removes all single use cutlery to reduce waste

Aldi is removing all single-use cutlery from its Food to Go range as it encourages consumers to switch to reusable options.

The change, which is effective in all UK stores, will result in a reduction of 10.5 million wooden forks in salads and pasta bowls or 28 tonnes of waste.

This will also help the discount grocer to significantly cut back on single use items.

Aldi plastics and packaging director, Luke Emery, said: “At Aldi, we are constantly reviewing ways to become more environmentally friendly, and this is another positive change to help us make a difference.

“This will result in a significant reduction in single use materials and help customers to make more environmentally friendly choices.”

This comes as Aldi is also looking to remove plastic from its business.

Last week, the supermarket began a trial to sell vacuum and flow-wrap packed beef mince to cut the amount of plastic packaging used by up to 73%.
