Now only 10p “Bags for Life” are dished out at checkouts

Other shoppers, like us, opted for the bag for life every single time and always forgot it lived in the bottomless pit of our handbags.Britain’s biggest supermarket, Tesco, has become the first supermarket to scrap its single use 5p carrier bags.This means shoppers will be forced to pay 10p if they forget to bring one with them.Now only 10p “Bags for Life” are dished out at checkouts following successful trials in Aberdeen, Dundee and Norwich where usage was slashed by 25 per cent.Since free bags were axed in supermarkets in England in 2015, 1.5 billion fewer bags have been doled out by Tesco.But it still sells 700 million single use bags a year 13 and half times more than the 51 million bags bought at Sainsbury’s reports The Mirror.(Image: The Mirror, Getty)Pay more or bring your own bags Now Tesco shoppers will have to pay the price of the chain’s bid to be greener or be better organised and carry their own totes.Despite the cost of bags doubling, campaigners have welcomed the move.Louise Edge of Greenpeace said: “It’s great to see major retailers moving away from disposable plastic.Supermarket wars: What customers really think of the shopping giants in Cambridge”For too long we’ve seen plastic as something to be used once and thrown away.
