A number of Portuguese retailers have unveiled plastic reduction measures, with Auchan Retail Portugal ceasing the sale of single-use plastic disposable items such as plates, bowls, glasses, cutlery and straws.

All these products have been replaced by Actuel Green, an eco-friendly range produced with natural materials, which offers biodegradable and reusable alternatives.

The Actuel Green line is manufactured with natural materials and includes products made with cardboard of sustainable origin and biodegradable plastic, and reusable alternatives, produced with bamboo and melamine.

To reduce carbon footprint, 90% of Actuel Green’s products are produced in Europe, with the goal of reaching 100% by 2022.
