Cleanup in the Packaging Aisle Webinar: Why Whole Foods needs to put Planet Over Plastic

January 12, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Americans love the ocean: the sound of waves crashing and the smell of saltwater in the air — and, sadly, it’s also flooded with plastic. To stop plastic from entering our ocean, we need supermarkets like Whole Foods to put ‘planet over plastic’ by eliminating all single-use plastic packaging.

During our “Cleanup in the Packaging Aisle” webinar you’ll hear from Kelly McBee, Waste Program Coordinator for As You Sow, talk about the recent report that gave Whole Foods an F for failing to to adopt comprehensive policies to reduce its plastic footprint.

The Cofounder of BringIt, Deb Singer, will share about her experience working with Whole Foods and her role in the company’s reusable bag initiative. Finally, Anna Farrell-Sherman, Environment Texas Research & Policy Center Clean Water Associate will join us to talk about how plastic impacts Texas waterways–and why as a Lone Star-based brand, Whole Foods needs to lead.

After registering, you’ll receive a link to the Zoom webinar.
