Waitrose is to re­move loose fruit and veg­etable plas­tic bags by spring 2019 and 5p sin­gle-use plas­tic car­rier bags by March next year.

The re­tailer says the move will save 134 mil­lion plas­tic bags, the equiv­a­lent of 500 tonnes of plas­tic a year.

A home-com­postable ma­te­rial will be used for the store’s fruit and veg­etable bags.
