Tesco scraps 5p shopping bags for 10p 'Bags for Life'

Friday 11th August 2017

Tesco is scrapping its 5p plastic carrier bags and replacing them with a new 10p Bag for Life made from 94% recycled plastic.

The announcement follows a successful 10-week trial in Aberdeen, Dundee and Norwich, where Tesco found that customers bought significantly fewer bags when only pricer bags were offered.
