Did you know?... Aldi Ireland has recently planted 15,000 trees on a site in Muingaphuca, County Kerry. This is in addition to the 16,000 trees that were planted on a site in Rockfield, Limerick in December 2019.  The new plantation of native Irish woodland will help to encourage local flora and fauna, while aligning with the Government’s aim to plant 22 million trees a year until 2040, the retailer said. 

Did you know?... Aldi Nord and Aldi Süd have announced plans to use plastic pallets in their logistics operations in Germany. From autumn 2020, the retailers will gradually replace the classic 80cm x 60cm wooden pallets with plastic alternatives developed by Walther Faltsysteme.

Did you know?... Spar Hungary has rolled out sustainable packaging solutions across all stores in the country following a successful pilot phase. The initiative, which was launched last year, aims to reduce the use of plastic by encouraging consumers to opt for reusable bags for fruit & vegetables and bakery products.
