At Asda, we're working hard to reduce the use of plastic and paper wherever we can. As part of this commitment, we moved away from the automatic provision of carrier bags with Home Delivery and Click & Collect orders. We've also removed paper delivery notes. By doing this, we'll take over 500 tonnes of plastic and 40 million sheets of paper out of circulation each year.
What does this mean for me?
For home deliveries, when you place your order you can choose to opt-in to have your shopping delivered in carrier bags. If you choose to opt-in, the driver will leave the bags on the doorstep and wait a safe distance away while you collect them. Please be aware that a 40p charge will be applied to your order for the carrier bags and all proceeds from this go to our Fight Hunger charity.
If you choose not to have carrier bags, the driver will leave the crates on the doorstep and wait a safe distance away while you unpack your shopping. If you need additional assistance, please let us know in the delivery notes section when you checkout so our drivers are aware ahead of your delivery.
For Click & Collect, you can opt-in for carrier bags when placing your order. If you choose not to have carrier bags, please remember to bring bags when you collect your order. We offer a range of Bags for Life in our stores - and if it wears out, we'll replace it.
If you use our Click & Collect lockers, we will now pack your order in bags for life.
For hygiene reasons, we will still put any fresh meat or fish items in small plastic bags - but we'll keep these to a minimum.
Thanks for your support, together we can make a real difference.
