Aldi to trial paper band in place of traditional plastic banana bags

Bananas with paper band

ALDI is to trial replacing the traditional plastic banana bag with a paper band alternative on selected lines.

If successful, the supermarket said the change would help to remove an estimated 234 tonnes of plastic packaging each year.

Luke Emery, plastics and packaging director at Aldi, said, “At Aldi, we know how important reducing plastic is to our customers, colleagues and the future of the planet.

“We are constantly reviewing ways we can do this, and our latest trial on bananas is another great step on that journey.”
