I just heard today that Whole Foods will no longer be carrying plastic bags in the near future. You will be able to purchase their "Better Bags" for ninety nine cents that you can reuse. You can read all about it here.
Whole foods "Better Bags" are made from recycled plastic bottles. Here are a few reasons from the Whole Foods site that we should use reusable bags:
- It can take more than a thousand years for a disposable plastic bag to break down in a landfill.
- Most reusable bags can be used thousands of times and there are so many reusable bag options!
- Thousands of customers and Team Members support our Core Value to “care about our communities and the environment.”
