Starting with this month, Lidl Romania will gradually introduce in its stores a new type of shopping receipts, more resistant and more environmentally friendly. Thus, the company reaffirms its commitment to sustainability.


The new recepit is made of an innovative, blue thermal paper, without chemical dyes. Thus, it is resistant to sunlight, water and grease and does not lose its legibility or other physical properties over time. In addition, the paper from which it is made is FSC certified, coming from sustainable forestry. The receipt is recyclable and when customers no longer need it, they can safely collect it along with other paper waste.

Together with the transition to the new shopping receipt, the packaging of paper rolls for cash registers was also optimized – the company gave up the use of plastic for grouping rolls. This change contributes to the objectives of the Schwarz Group’s REset Plastic strategy, by saving 30 tons of plastic annually, at the entire Schwarz Group level.
