The German food discounter Aldi Süd has developed a climate-neutral sneaker under its own brand, Crane Pure, which will be on sale from June 10. The sneaker is made partly from recycled PET bottles, and the CO² emissions caused by production, transport and distribution are offset by a certified climate protection project in Cambodia, says Aldi Süd. The sneaker will cost €12.99 a pair at its retail stores and will be available in three different designs - a model for women in red, a model for men in green and a unisex version in white. The climate protection project in Cambodia is about subsidizing sales of ceramic water filter systems so that people from rural parts of the country have access to clean drinking water. According to Aldi Süd, boiling water is no longer necessary, which has a positive effect on both the climate and people’s health. Since 2017, Aldi Süd has been the first major food retailer in Germany to get involved in climate-neutrality. After offering a climate-neutral coffee from Honduras as a promotional item, its new “Green Sneaker” is the second climate-neutral product at Aldi Süd. Further products are to be added in the course of this year.
