Lidl to launch a reusable bag for loose fruit and vegetables

A good idea.

Lidl has announced it will introduce reusable bags for loose fruit and veg in their stores.

Lidl Green Bags will go on sale in September at 99c for a pack of two, and will be available in all 162 stores across Ireland.

In recent times, the company has offered customers in-store recycling and has also discontinued the sale of single-use plastics such as straws, disposable plates, cups, and cutlery.

Deirdre Ryan, Head of CSR at Lidl Ireland said: "This announcement is the latest step on our journey to tackle the important issue of plastic waste. We have already implemented several plastic waste reduction initiatives such as our recycling stations in stores, ending the sale of many single use plastic items and the removal of unrecyclable black plastics from numerous categories across our range.

"We're proud to be leading the Irish retail sector in implementing sustainable initiatives that benefit our environment, our communities and our customers. We re grateful for our customers support on this journey and hope that they support this latest initiative as we continue to respond to their concerns about plastic waste.”
