Costco CEO W. Craig Jelinek:
We, the undersigned, are concerned about your company’s wasteful use of bulk packaging and its impact on both our communities and the planet.
Waste pollution, especially from packaging such as the kind found on Costco’s shelves, is piling up all around us — the U.S. throws out enough plastic alone to fill the Dallas Cowboys football stadium every day. We need to be doing all we can to stem the tide of all this packaging waste — and putting 2-inch jars of face cream being placed in their own plastic packages 10 inches wide by 11 inches high, among other examples of truly excessive packaging, isn’t helping.
Please act quickly to end Costco’s use of bulk packaging for small products.
