Aldi is getting rid of plastic packaging for their toilet paper


Going to the loo could get a little more environmentally friendly. You’ll need to ditch those non-flushable wet wipes first, though. Aldi has announced a trial to remove plastic packaging from packs of toilet roll. You might be thinking ‘wait, what plastic?’, which is fair enough. The inner tube is cardboard and the toilet roll itself is a sort of paper. But think of buying a big multipack of loo roll – they usually come in plastic packaging, often with a handy handle on top. Aldi will scrap that plastic cover and replace it with paper. So you still get the convenience of not having to carry 12 loo rolls in your bare hands, but without the planet-destroying plastic. Four-packs of Aldi’s luxury toilet paper will be sold wrapped in paper rather than plastic in 174 stores across parts of the north east and Midlands from next month.
