And it’s about time! I always wondered why they still allowed them, never mind allowing customers to ask for “paper and plastic, please”, which I have seen several times in there. We bring our own bags, but I am glad to see Whole Foods doing the right thing here and getting rid of their plastic bags. From ENN:
Whole Foods Market Inc said on Tuesday that it will aim to end the use of disposable plastic grocery bags in all of its 270 U.S., Canada, and United Kingdom stores by April 22, Earth Day. The grocer, which features natural and organic foods, said it hoped shoppers would bring their own reusable bags, but it would offer 100 percent recycled paper grocery bags when needed.
Thank you Whole Foods!
