Tesco has deducted millions of pounds in administration fees from funds raised from the plastic bag tax, an initiative that the government stated should go towards charitable causes. According to the Guardian Tesco topped the list of plastic bag sales following the introduction of the tax in 2015, but is the only supermarket to have deducted any money. The UK’s largest grocer deducted £3.4 million from the funds, equivalent to over 10 per cent of the total £31.9 million raised from selling 637 carrier bags.
