What happens to the money I pay for carrier bags?

Proceeds raised from the in-store charge will be donated to good causes, with Morrisons Foundation being the primary recipient. We will be treating proceeds from the charge for our online customers slightly differently, using them to support our recycling incentive and invest in paper bags as a way to reduce our plastic usage.

We won't be making a penny of profit and the breakdown of their use is available at Morrisons.com.
