Waitrose to remove plastic bags from deliveries and in-store collections

They’ll also be pulling 10p bags for life from all major stores

Waitrose is aiming to eliminate 40 million single-use plastic bags per year by removing them from deliveries and in-store collections.

Bags for life, which cost 10p, will also be pulled from all major stores, to be replaced with a 50p reusable bag that is said to be twice as durable, is made from recycled materials and is also fully recyclable.

The company said its research found that 10p bags were increasingly being used only once and not multiple times as intended.

The change will come into effect from September 27, the same day that into-home deliveries will be allowed again.

If preferred, customers can still bring their own shopping into their home in crates provided, or have it brought to their doorstep by the delivery driver.
