This Brand's Breaking Up With Single-Use Shopping Bags

We love a good sustainability story, and this one warms our hearts AND soles.


As part of shoe-brand Aldo’s continued commitment to a more sustainable future, the company is committing to phasing out single-use shopping bags and encouraging customers to carry its new, eco-designed totable shoebox right out of the store. The bagless initiative will eliminate an estimated 7 million single-use Aldo shopping bags globally, the equivalent to 12,773 bags per average Aldo Store.

“Over a decade ago, we introduced a shoebox with a rope as a first step to making our packaging more sustainable and guide our customers to better shopping habits. We now believe that our consumers are ready to accept our boxes as the solution to carry their shoes home,” said David Bensadoun, CEO. “The elimination of single-use bags is a major step in our long-term commitment to sustainability and is just one piece of the puzzle we are working on.”

Way to think outside of the shoebox, Aldo! —Vita Daily
