Large retailers in England are forced to charge 5p for a carrier bag from October 5 due to a new law named the Single Use Carrier Bags Charges Order.

This means when you pop into ASDA for your weekly shop, there will no longer be any bags available for you to carry your shopping in for free.

However, it’s all for a good cause. Research from showed that the number of plastic bags taken from supermarkets in 2014 had increased for the fifth year running, even though the average household already had 40 carriers stashed away in the house.

This means plastic bags were being thrown away, causing environmental damage and creating an eyesore on our streets and rural areas.

It can be hard to remember to take your own carriers when you’re going to the shops, so why not invest in a stylish Bag For Life that you won’t be embarrassed to put your groceries in?
