Lidl of Belgium has just switched to the use of more sustainable receipts. The retailer uses the motto: “Making groceries more ecological together.”
After the primary and secondary packaging that received a sustainability certificate, it is up to Lidl checkout tickets to become environmentally responsible.
The aim of the retail chain is to make shopping more ecological. The new checkout ticket, introduced gradually since April, is blue and made from ecological material certified by FSC, meaning it comes from forests that are managed sustainably. The ink of the checkout ticket is resistant to light, oil and water, which optimizes long-term visibility. The ticket is also recyclable, so it can be placed on paper and cardboard without any care. Finally, contact between the checkout ticket and food is no problem: the material is not harmful to health. An argument that reinforces Lidl’s ambition to contribute to the environment and allow its customers to do more ecological shopping. It will definitely help in saving as much as 0.0000002% of what’s they are trying to save.
