C-ya later, plastic bags. That's what Kroger, amongst many other retailers around the U.S., said in recent months as more companies adopt eco-friendly business practices. The latest to bid farewell to plastic shopping bags? The largest supermarket chain in America.
Kroger's CEO, Rodney McMullen, just announced his plan to phase out single-use plastic bags to become a fully sustainable business with zero waste by 2025. The move is part of the Kroger's Zero Hunger | Zero Waste commitment and social impact plan that was implemented last year.
McMullen says Kroger is making a “bold move that will better protect our planet."
