Why we’re increasing the price of our bags for life

July 15, 2019 08:00 AM

We know that reducing plastics is important to our customers – and it is important to us too.

In 2018 we removed single use bags from our stores and will remove for online orders from 31st July this year. As a result, we’ll have removed 375 million bags - around 2250 tonnes of plastic - from our business. This is in addition to the 6,500 tonnes of plastic we’ve removed from our own brand packaging over the last year.

We always want to offer our customers choice, but we also want to encourage them to reuse and recycle their plastic Bags for Life. That’s why from Monday 15th July, we will be increasing the price of a plastic bag for life to 15p whilst continuing to hold to our promise to replace broken bags for free if customers return them to us.

We’ll also continue to offer the best price available on heavy duty shopping bags and jute bags – our full prices are in the table below.
