Plastic Free Produce
On the eve of Earth Day 2019 we announced our commitment to eliminate petroleum-based plastics for our co-op packaging and consumables by 2022.
With a garbage truck worth of plastic ending up in the ocean every minute, and only 9% of plastic actually get recycled, it’s time each of us get serious about our usage. After all, we only have one planet to call home.
Simple tips for eliminating plastic when you shop for produce:
- Skip using a bag for produce – there is no requirement to use bags!
- Purchase a reusable produce bag and keep it handy.
- Choose paper bags that can be reused, recycled or composted.
- In a pinch, choose one of our new bio-plastic produce bags – they are 100% home-compostable certified*!
*Remember not all bio-plastic is home-compostable, but the produce bags we offer are!
