About Asda

We raised £285,437.67 for charity and good causes through the sale of single use bags at our stores in Wales last year.

Bag for Life

We introduced the 5p charge for single use carrier bags in October 2011 after the Welsh Assembly Government passed legislation to reduce carrier bag usage. We are pleased to report that not only have our customers used fewer bags for their shopping, they have also supported some fantastic causes in their local communities with the money raised from the sale of carrier bags.
