Environment America Research & Policy Center, U.S. PIRG Education Fund and a coalition of environmental advocacy groups are calling on Whole Foods to put ‘planet over plastic’ by eliminating all single-use plastic packaging from its operations.
America’s transportation system produces more greenhouse gas emissions than any other sector of our economy. Three strategies – phasing out fossil fuel vehicles, electrifying and improving our transit system, and getting more people moving by foot, bike and transit – can put the U.S. on a path to a zero-carbon transportation system.
On October 12th, 2020 a coalition of groups sent a letter urging Whole Foods to take bold action on reducing plastic waste. Now, an even larger number of groups are writing to reiterate the need for action and to demonstrate the breadth of support for Whole Foods to put Planet Over Plastic by eliminating all single-use plastic packaging from its stores.
