Is Your Supermarket Reducing Plastic Pollution?

(StatePoint) Plastic pollution is a crisis for communities, oceans and waterways, according to environmental experts, who point out that supermarkets -- as major contributors to the growing problem -- are in an important position to acknowledge and address the issue.

A recent report from Greenpeace, “Packaging Away the Planet,” ranked 20 major U.S. grocery retailers on their efforts to eliminate single-use plastics, evaluating them on their policies, plastic reduction efforts, innovation and initiatives and transparency. The report found that, across the board, U.S. supermarkets are not adequately addressing the plastic pollution crisis.
