 Supermarket chain Booths, which has 28 retail stores in northern England, with most of its branches located in Lancashire, has introduced a reusable bag for fruit and veg in its aggressive phase-out of single-use plastics.
 
This is part of a range of practical steps to dramatically reduce the amount of plastics used in the regional food and drink retailer.
 
As of next month, cotton net bags will be used in place of single-use produce bags. Other initiatives include paper straws replacing plastic straws and recycling collection points in store for disposable coffee cups.
 
"The reduction of plastics is a priority for all our teams, informing buying and packaging choices at all levels of the business," said Chris Stoves, health, safety and environment manager.
 
The new bags will be unveiled at their Carnforth store in Lancaster, while the logs will be introduced later on in the autumn. It plans to eventually cull single-use plastic bags in all of its stores - also launching a 10p "bag for life" made from 90% recyclable plastic.
