John Lewis & Partners Oxford branch is poised to become the first department store to eradicate plastic bags.
As part of a new pilot scheme, the department store chain is getting rid of its 5p plastic bags and introducing reusable click-and-collect bags.
The retailer said it will use the Oxford trial to learn how it could expand the initiative to other locations.
Alongside the plastic bag free trial, the department store will introduce click and collect bags made from recycled materials – helping to save over five tonnes of plastic waste.
