Asda has pledged to stop using single-use plastic carrier bags with its online grocery orders in a move to save around 500 tonnes of plastic a year.

The supermarket has announced it will remove the option to have a “bagged” delivery on all home deliveries and click and collect orders nationwide from 31 July.

Asda estimated the move, which follows a trial period in southwest England and its Dartford Home Shopping Centre, will remove around 85 million plastic bags from production each year.
