Costco CEO Ron Vachris,

We urge you to stop using excessive, supersized packaging for Costco products. All of this unnecessary packaging ends up as pollution in landfills or the environment, much of which will outlive us all because it does not break down for hundreds of years.

Being a Costco member shouldn’t mean belonging to a system of excessive waste. We, the undersigned, urge you to take action on this important issue.
