UK retailer Asda has announced that it will stop offering single-use plastic carrier bags with its online grocery orders, effective 31 July.

The retailer will remove the option of ‘bagged’ delivery on all online grocery orders and click-and-collect orders across the nation.

Asda will remove 85 million plastic bags from its operations annually through this initiative.

The decision to launch the initiative at a national level follows a successful trial run in its Dartford Home Shopping Centre in south-west England

To help customers transition through this change, Asda’s delivery drivers will assist in unloading the purchases in a convenient place, the retailer said.
