Breaking News ! In a huge shake-up to the in-store shopping experience, Morrisons has become the latest supermarket to announce the ban of plastic bags. It comes after Tesco made a similar announcement, that they would no longer be supplying tray liners or non-essential plastic bags with click and collect or delivery orders. Morrisons are planning to go one step further, and scrap plastic bags from their stores entirely, instead offering shoppers 30p paper bags. The supermarket has said the move will save 3,200 tonnes of plastic per year, following the removal of free single use plastic bags in 2017. This change will not just impact a few Morrisons stores as a trial, but will come into force in every branch across the UK.

The paper bags will cost 30p - and if you don't fancy those the alternatives will be jute, cotton and reusable woven bags, priced between 75p and £2.

. The removal of the plastic ‘bags for life’ will be phased and will begin in Scotland this month, followed by England and Wales over the course of the next year. Almost 100 million plastic bags will be removed in total, that’s 1.9 million a week. Use our tool below to find out more about food banks near you: Morrisons is the first UK supermarket to move away from plastic bags completely following a successful trial of paper bags in selected stores in 2020, which proved popular with customers. David Potts, chief executive of Morrisons said: "We have been listening hard to our customers over the past year and we know that they are passionate about doing their bit to keep plastics out of the environment. Removing all of the plastic bags from our supermarkets is a significant milestone in our sustainability programme.” Single use 5p carrier bags were removed from Morrisons in 2018 but some customers continue to buy plastic ‘bags for life’, which are stronger and thicker. An increase of price to 50p was introduced to Morrisons plastic ‘bags for life’ in December 2020. Since 2017 Morrisons has removed and made recyclable over 10,000 tonnes of plastic. Morrisons is on track to hit its 50% plastic reduction target by 2025.
