Penny To Remove Plastic Lids From 500gm Yoghurt Cups

German discount retailer Penny has announced that it is to remove plastic lids from all own-brand 500-gram yoghurt cups.

The initiative will help the discounter in removing 50 tonnes of plastic from its operations per year.

It will involve the removal of plastic lids from several Penny natural yoghurts (0.1%, 1.5%, and 3.5%) as well as different varieties of Skyr sold under the Elite private-label brand, the company said.

Reusable Alternative

The retailer is offering two pieces of reusable lids for €0.99 to enable customers to comfortably and hygienically reseal yoghurt cups.

These lids, made of platinum-silicone, are food-safe and dishwasher-proof, the retailer added.

Penny has pledged to make 100% of its packaging environmentally friendly by the end of 2030.
