Aldi Ireland Reveal Reduction In Plastic For Easter Egg Packaging

Aldi Ireland have announced a serious reduction in plastic packaging for one of their top-selling Eater eggs.

Róisín’s Honeycomb Easter Eggs will see plastic packaging on the product reduced by 94%.

The main plastic packaging will be replaced with cardboard and foil, which can be recycled in household recycling bins.

The remaining 6% of packaging represents the foil used to wrap the sweets. This soft plastic is also easily recyclable by using a domestic recycling bin.

Aldi’s initiative demonstrates the discount retailer’s continued commitment to reducing its plastic waste.


The organisation has committed to reducing plastic waste by 50% by 2025.

The retailer is continuing to reduce plastic packaging across its network of stores. It has partners with suppliers who share their commitment in reducing waste.

The plastics and packaging manager at Aldi Ireland Jason Carolan welcomed the step in reducing waste.

Carolan said, “We are eager to take a step towards eliminating plastics from our packaging, in line with our pledge for all of our packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025.

“Our Róisín’s Honeycomb Easter Egg is now an even better option for shoppers – not only does it offer…unbeatable quality at unbeatable prices – but now with 94% less plastic, this makes the product 100% recyclable which is great for shoppers keen to ensure their Easter is as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible.”


He concluded, “Aldi remains committed to continue looking for innovative ways to make sustainable changes across our entire range providing customers with the same premium products in more environmentally friendly packaging.”
