Waitrose is aiming to eliminate 40 million single-use plastic bags per year by removing them from deliveries and in-store collections.
The retailer has announced plans to revamp the way customers carry their shopping from stores and receive them at home.
Bags for life, which cost 10p, will also be pulled from all major stores, to be replaced with a 50p reusable bag that is said to be twice as durable, is made from recycled materials and is also fully recyclable.
The company said its research found that 10p bags were increasingly being used only once and not multiple times as intended.
The change will come into effect from September 27, the same day that into-home deliveries will be allowed again.
If preferred, customers can still bring their own shopping into their home in crates provided, or have it brought to their doorstep by the delivery driver.
In April, Morrisons became the first major UK supermarket to completely remove plastic carrier bags, including bags for life, from their stores.
Asda, Sainsbury’s and Tesco had already removed plastic bags from deliveries, while Aldi announced a new plan to make all product packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable by the end of 2025.
The original 5p levy on plastic bags was introduced in England in 2015, with recent figures showing the number of single-use bags distributed by large supermarkets has fallen by more than 95 per cent.
The price of the bags rose to 10p earlier this year.
By extending the charge to all retailers, it was expected the use of single-use carrier bags would decrease by 70 per cent to 80 per cent in small and medium-sized businesses, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) previously said.
