Wegmans Pledges End Of Plastic Bags

Wegmans Food Markets says it will eliminate plastic bags companywide by the end of the year. The grocer will still offer paper bags at a charge of 5 cents per bag, with those funds being donated to local food banks and the United Way. In locations that have already enacted the ban, Wegmans estimates that “paper bags are used for 20%-25% of transactions and 75%-80% use reusable bags or no bags at all,” per Progressive Grocer. “The company says it will prevent approximately 345,000,000 single-use bags from going into circulation over one year.”
