H&M has announced it will move from plastic to paper bags in the UK in time for Christmas shopping.
The process will begin on 29 October and all UK stores will use only paper bags by the beginning of December.
The new paper bags will still carry a 5p charge, however, all proceeds will be donated to charitable causes.
Unicef, H&M’s lead partner, has received over £1.9m in donations from the high street brand since it introduced the carrier bag charge in 2015.
H&M said it ”aims to use its size and scale to lead the change towards a circular and renewable fashion industry”.
