Whole Foods CEO Jason Buechel,

Whole Foods claims that its mission is to “nourish people and the planet,” so why is there so much wasteful plastic packaging on its shelves? Far from nourishing us, piles of plastic trash put our health and communities at risk.

If we’re going to turn the tide on plastic waste, we need prominent supermarket chains such as Whole Foods to play a major role. Your company can set a valuable example for others in the industry to follow by making a bold, time-bound commitment to reducing its plastic footprint.

I strongly urge you to eliminate unnecessary single use plastic packaging from your store’s shelves.
