Asda will no longer offer plastic carrier bags with online grocery orders.
Starting next month the retailer will be the first supermarket to eliminate single-use carrier bags from its online operations.
Exception - Meat - Fish - Health - Safety
The exception is with fresh meat and fish, which will still need to be bagged for health and safety reasons.
The move will mean 85million plastic bags – amounting to 500 tonnes– will no longer be produced and used each year.
Asda - Option - Delivery - Grocery - Home
Asda will remove the option to have a 'bagged' delivery on all grocery home shopping and 'click and collect' orders nationwide from July 31.
Delivered goods will arrive in a crate, and will be unloaded by the customer, or by the courier if requested.
Move - Critics - Online - Shopping - Deliveries
The move will answer critics of online shopping who have complained that deliveries use an excessive amount of plastic – with in some cases just one item being packed in a carrier bag.
The Daily Mail has campaigned against single-use plastic.
Campaign - Charge - Carrier - Bags - Cent
Our successful campaign for a 5p charge on the carrier bags led to a dramatic 83 per cent reduction in the number handed out every year.
