MORRISONS is bringing back string bags after listening to customers who want plastic-free ways to carry fruit and vegetables.

The move will mean that customers can buy loose fruit and veg or wrap it in a paper bag and carry it home in a string bag.

Earlier this year, Bradford based Morrisons became the first supermarket to roll-out plastic free fruit and veg areas in its stores, allowing customers to choose from up to 127 varieties of loose produce.

The new string bags will help customers to carry this unpackaged fruit and veg, helping to reduce the amount of plastic packaging needed for a weekly shop.

The reuseable string bags will cost £1 each and are being trialled in four stores, including Guiseley and Skipton.
