I think Trader Joe's should indeed use less plastic. While this is a somewhat minor, insignificant detail, I think it's important to be clear that Trader Joe's does not wrap their bananas in plastic. Also, none of the apples are individually wrapped, but the smaller apples are sold in bags containing 6-10 apples.

Maybe there should be a focus on one or two specific produce items such as the artichokes or cucumbers rather than EVERYTHING at once.

I am very much happy the one can come up for the stoppage of the use of plastic packaging , of a truth it is not good for our health and it helps to cause pollution of different ways , so thanks the causes for bringing out this issue.

Finalmente a tentativa de acabar com este flagelo/negócio escandaloso/lobby do excesso de embalagem em nome the Qualidade Alimentar. Se cada um de nós optar por produtos não embalados, estamos a contribuir para a melhoria do ambiente sem prejuízo the qualidade dos alimentos. Diminuímos também a grande negociata the industria de embalagem/petróleo.......

I live in Molokai, plastic bags are illegal at the grocery store, you MUST bring your own reusable bags or repurpose a cardboard box if you can find one. When you have NO OTHER OPTION but to bring your own bags you learn quick and don't forget.

we need more awareness that using these plastic bags in excess is a form of slow poisoning, so we should spread the word around to avoid it.

the massive plastic used to wrap even smaller objects is just sickening, and when organic products are plastic wrapped too the whole idea goes down the drain.
