Aldi US has unveiled plans to use How2Recycle across all brand products in the next two years, as part of its commitment to sustainability.

The How2Recycle label is a standardised labelling system that provides recycling instructions to the public.

It will allow Aldi shoppers to recycle better by making it easy for them to identify which package can be recycled, as well as providing information to them regarding any additional steps needed to prepare the package for recycling.

“We pride ourselves on a smart, sustainable approach to sourcing products for our customers, and we’re excited to partner with How2Recycle.”

How2Recycle project manager Caroline Cox said: “We’re thrilled to welcome ALDI in the growing list of retailers in the How2Recycle programme.

“The full-scale adoption of How2Recycle across product categories demonstrates a growing ALDI commitment to accurate and harmonised recycling labelling that empowers consumers to recycle more and better.”

The retailer signed up for the How2Recycle programme in line with its broader goals to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills by recycling batteries, cardboard, paper, plastic film and foil from all stores and warehouses.
