Lidl Belgium will no longer offer or sell any plastic bags from September on

Supermarket chain Lidl will stop offering or selling any kind of plastic bags at its cash registers in Belgium from this September on. Instead, the chain will only offer bags that are truly sustainable, for example bags made out of sugar cane, or linen fair trade bags. This will save at least 200 tons of plastics on an annual basis. The company is still looking for a viable biodegradable alternative for plastic bags offered at its veggie and fruit sections. More at HNL (in Dutch).
