It’s nearly impossible to avoid single-use plastic when shopping for food and other necessities.
Yet, tens of thousands of customers have urged major retailers to ditch single-use plastics.
Sobeys announced its decision to ban plastic bags completely from its cash registers by 2020... but this first step must be followed by more concrete measures to reduce the company’s plastic footprint, and other major retailers must do the same in order to phase out disposable plastic packaging.
We are calling on the two industry giants in Canada, Loblaw (Provigo, Superstore, T&T, No Frills, Shoppers Drug Mart, etc) and Sobeys (IGA, Sobeys, Safeway, Foodland, Lawtons, etc) to listen to their customers.
Send an email to their CEOs and tell them you’ve had enough of the plastic waste generated by shopping at their stores.
