What is Bags of Help?
Bags of Help is our exciting local community grant scheme funded by the government’s 5p bag charge.
Supported by environmental charity Groundwork, we’re transforming green spaces, sports facilities and woodland walks across the UK for customers, colleagues and communities to enjoy.

Tesco, like other large retailers, is required by law to charge a minimum of 5p for every carrier bag bought by a customer. It’s all part of the government’s drive to reduce waste. Proceeds generated from sales of the bags will be given to good causes as set out by Defra (Department for Environment Food & Rural Affairs). Reasonable administrative costs, as set out by Defra, will be deducted from the proceeds by Tesco. For more information, please visit www.tesco.com/bagsofhelp
