Aldi has announced plans to convert 100% of its packaging to reusable, recyclable or compostable materials by 2025, according to a company press release.

The company will also reduce packaging for all Aldi-exclusive products by at least 15%, and will add How2Recycle labels on all of its Aldi-exclusive consumable packaging by 2020. Also by 2020, Aldi will implement a program to make it easier for customers to reuse private-label packaging materials.

Aldi has long been active in plastic reduction, eschewing single-use shopping bags for more than 40 years. It maintains an Aldi Corporate Responsibility program, through which it recycled more than 250,000 tons of materials from its stores last year.
