Online Deliveries At Waitrose To Go ‘Bagless’ By September End

Upmarket UK retailer Waitrose & Partners has announced that all deliveries and in-store collections will be bagless, effective 27 September.

The initiative will remove an estimated 40 million plastic bags per year from the retailer’s operations.

Alternatively, customers can bring their purchases inside the house on crates provided or request assistance from the driver to transfer it into their own bags at the doorstep.

The decision follows extensive research showing that these bags have increasingly become single-use items.

The retailer will introduce a new reusable alternative on the same day, which it says is twice as durable, made from recycled materials and fully recyclable.
