According to the budget supermarket, this will result in a reduction of 10.5 million wooden forks in salads and pasta bowls.
That’s 28 tonnes of waste that will be saved if customers permanently switch to reusable options.
The move will help Aldi make a ‘significant reduction’ on single use items.
Luke Emery, plastics and packaging director at Aldi, said: ‘At Aldi, we are constantly reviewing ways to become more environmentally friendly, and this is another positive change to help us make a difference.
‘This will result in a significant reduction in single use materials and help customers to make more environmentally friendly choices.’
It isn’t the first move the supermarket has made to make its packaging more sustainable.
Aldi recently switched to colourless milk caps to improve the recyclability of the bottles and is currently trialling vacuum-packed beef mince in select stores across Northamptonshire, Leicestershire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire, the West Midlands and Worcestershire.
The packaging removes the need for a paper lining and uses no carbon dioxide in production.
The supermarket will trial flow-wrap packed beef mince in the same stores from November.
