Lidl makes Greenpeace Detox commitment

Written by John Mowbray

HAMBURG – Lidl, one of the world's leading discount retailers which boasts annual textile sales of one billion euros, has committed to eliminating all hazardous chemicals from its supply chains by 2020 as part of the Greenpeace Detox campaign. The German company's commitment arrives not long after it was targeted - along with a number of other discount retailers - in a Greenpeace report which claimed that more than half of laboratory tested clothing samples from discount stores such as Aldi, Tchibo and Lidl were found to contain potentially toxic chemicals. Following the findings, Tchibo also recently committed to 'detox' its textile production.
