Lidl’s new reusable produce bag

LIDL has introduced reusable fruit and veg bags across its store estate.

The bags are priced at 69p for a pack of two and the discounter hopes this will provide customers with an “affordable, reusable alternative” to single-use, small fruit and veg bags.

Georgina Hall of Lidl GB said: “Ever since we opened our doors in Great Britain 25 years ago, we have been strongly committed to finding ways to reduce our plastic waste.

‘We’ve made changes – big and small – over the years to help contribute to this.

“Today’s announcement is the next step, and one which we hope will help customers shift to a truly reusable option.”
