This government initiative is to reduce the use of single use bags, and encourage the reuse of bags.
Whilst we are charging for single use carrier bags we do still offer paper bag alternatives, on request,
which will continue to be Free of Charge.
5p Carrier Bag Charge
From 5th October we will be charging 5p for plastic carrier bags, the proceeds will support 2 Guildford based charities:
The Prostate Project
As part of the OfficeTeam group we fall within the governments guidelines requiring us to levy a charge for carrier bags. We are legally obliged to make the charge, we also have an obligation to record the number of carrier bags used and inform DEFRA what the money has been used for. The expectation is for the money to go towards good causes, hence our decision to support two Guildford based Charities, The Prostate Project and Project Peru
Carrier Bag Levy
Since October 2015, Biddles of Guildford customers have purchased 595 carrier bags, this has generated £25. We are donating this in full to Charity.
Our chosen Charity is:
The Prostate Project giving men a better chance of beating prostate cancer
We are also making a matching donation to:
Project Peru is a small, lively, totally voluntary UK-
