Tesco stores in Gedling borough to scrap sale of 5p carrier bags

New 10p Bag For Life will replace single-use carrier bags at stores across the area

Tesco stores in Gedling borough are to scrap selling 5p carrier bags later this month.

The single-use carrier bags are being replaced by a new Bag For Life – which costs 10p.

Single-use plastic bags will stop being sold in Tesco stores from August 28.

The UK’s biggest supermarket says they believe that removing single use carrier bags will significantly reduce the number of bags sold, and help cut litter and landfill.

Usage of single-use carrier bags has dropped by more than 85 per cent, according to government figures.

The new bag for life is made of 94 per cent recycled plastic and will be replaced for free, if damaged.

Customers who order their shopping online will still be able to opt for a single use carrier bag for their shopping or select a bagless delivery.
