The ‘Green Bags’, priced at 69p for two, provide customers with a reusable alternative to single-use, small fruit and vegetable bags.

Georgina Hall, head of CSR at Lidl GB commented: “Ever since we opened our doors in Great Britain, 25 years ago, we have been strongly committed to finding ways to reduce our plastic waste. We’ve made changes – big and small – over the years to help contribute to this. Today’s announcement is the next step, and one which we hope will help customers shift to a truly reusable option.”

The move builds on the discounter’s commitment to combatting plastic waste, including reducing plastic packaging by 20% by 2022 and making sure 100% of its own brand packaging is widely recyclable, reusable, refillable or renewable by 2025.

Lidl is also rolling out the reusable fruit and veg bags to all its stores in Ireland.
