Tesco New Bags For Life Scheme Continues to Fund ‘Bags of Help’ (UK)

Following a 10-week trial in Aberdeen, Dundee and Norwich, Tesco is to stop selling single use carrier bags from 28 August and will replace them with a new 10p ‘Bag for Life’. Community groups, will still benefit from the funding generated by sales of the new bag through the Bags of Help grant funding stream managed by Groundwork UK and Greenspace Scotland.

Grants of up to £4,000 are available to Charities and community groups applying for support for local projects that improve the environment. Voluntary or community organisations (including registered charities/companies), schools, health bodies (e.g. Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), NHS Hospital Trust, Foundation Trust), Parish/Town Councils, local authorities and social housing providers can apply at any time.
