The removal of the plastic ‘bags for life’ will be phased and will begin in Scotland this month, followed by England and Wales over the course of the next year, Morrisons said. It added that the policy will see the removal almost 100 million plastic bags in total.

. In a message to shoppers, Tesco wrote: "From 19 April, we’re removing tray liners and non-essential plastic bags from all online orders. If you place your order before 19 April for delivery after that date, you’ll still receive tray liners if you’ve asked for them. "As a response to COVID‐19 and to ensure the safety of our customers and colleagues, we reintroduced carrier bags for all online orders. However, we know how concerned many of you are about plastic – and we’re aware we have an important role to play in reducing plastic consumption. "This means there’ll no longer be an option at the checkout to have your shopping packed in plastic bags or tray liners. Your groceries will instead be placed directly into our trays. For health and safety reasons, we'll continue to use red plastic bags for meat, fish and some household cleaning products. You can also be assured that we’ll continue to work hard to keep trays and other delivery equipment hygienic. "If your order is being delivered, we recommend having your own bags ready to pack into. If you’ve not got these at the door, don’t worry – there’s always time to grab them. If you’re vulnerable, disabled or elderly, your driver can still bring your shopping inside, but they won’t be able to enter your home if you’re currently self‐isolating."
