Sainsbury’s Hikes Price Of Reusable Carrier Bags

UK retailer Sainsbury's has announced that it has increased the price of its ‘Bag for Life’ carrier bags from 10p to 20p.

The retailer aims to encourage consumers to reuse carrier bags, thereby reducing the use of plastics.

Commenting on the decision to increase the price of the bags, a Sainsbury's spokesperson said, "This is part of our ongoing commitment to help reduce the amount of plastic that’s used and we continue to donate the profits to good causes.

"We are trialling this across our store estate to test the customer response and welcome customer feedback."

The move is an extension of a trial, which was carried out in Wales earlier this year, the retailer added.

The retailer has pledges to reduce the use of plastics in its operation by 50% by 2025.
