Lidl disposable plastic from the range ban

Lidl removes single-use plastic items from its range

Neckarssulm. The grocery giant Lidl has announced that by the end of 2019 it will be removing many disposable Plastic from the product range. Plastic drinking straws, disposable cups, plates, cutlery and cotton buds made of plastic will then no longer be on sale. Lidl is thus taking the next big step towards a more environmentally friendly supermarket and at the same time providing inspiration for its competitors.

What else Lidl is doing besides the plastic ban

It's not just the ban on single-use plastic items such as drinking straws or cups - Lidl is also changing many products so that they generate less plastic waste. For example, the detergent packaging of its own brands is being reduced in size so that a smaller bottle can save around 116 tons of plastic per year, according to Lidl management.

Lidl had already completely abolished plastic bags last year and thus managed to use around 3500 tons less plastic per year. It will be interesting to see what happens next at the Lidl food discounter.
