Lidl partnered with Cristaline to recycle plastic bottles

After Auchan, Lidl joins forces with Cristaline to encourage the recycling of plastic bottles. A first shop in Arras has just installed an Ecobox at the entrance to its shop, and others should follow in the north of France.
 
This experimental system, supervised by Citéo, is being developed by a French company. The machines make it possible to crush plastic bottles instantaneously. The "flakes" are then sent to Lesquin (59), to the Roxpet factory of the Sources Alma group, in order to manufacture recycled plastic. This will then be incorporated into the 1.5 litre Cristaline bottles. The latter already contain 25% of this r-PET.
 
In return, the supermarket offers its customers one cent per bottle deposited. This sum is provided in the form of a voucher that can be used in the shop. A donation to an association can also be made.
 
With this new partnership, the brand is one step closer to meeting the French government's requirement for 100% recycled plastic packaging by 2025.
