• Tesco store in Somersham village stops handing out plastic bags

    Shortly before, Tesco decided to cut the use of its environment-friendly degradable bags, given that these were well, not as green as they were expected to be. The supermarket chain recently swung open its doors at Somersham, a village in Cambridgeshire, and has decided to stick to the green policies of the little habitation. Instead, the Tesco store will have “bag for life”, plastic bags that aren’t meant to be disposed but used repeatedly. Also, Tesco will keep an ear open for customer feedback, and will decide if continuing with these will be appropriate for the future.

    Also, this will be the first Tesco facility in the United Kingdom not to hand out free plastic bags to shoppers, and we’re hoping the change brought out in the little village of Somersham spreads out to Tesco stores across the region!
