Fashion retailer Uniqlo’s parent company Fast Retailing is set to remove single-use plastic bags from its brands, replacing them with reusable and paper alternatives.

Under the plans, all Uniqlo stores still offering single-use plastic bags will switch to the new paper bags on 1 September. The bags will be made using paper certified as sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
