Morrisons to use brown paper bags for fruit and vegetables to cut plastic use


Supermarket Morrisons is bringing back brown paper bags for loose fresh fruit and vegetables in the hope it will prevent 150m small plastic bags from being used annually, according to The Guardian. 

The paper bags are being rolled out from today and will be in all of the supermarket’s 493 stores by the end of summer. 


These bags are made from 100% recyclable paper and have a transparent paper strip to help shoppers and staff identify the item inside.  

Morrisons produce director Drew Kirk said: “We’ve listened to customers’ concerns about using plastic bags for fruit and vegetables and that is why we are bringing back paper bags.”
