Update on August 16, 2012
Thank you everyone for your support for this petition to reduce bag waste at Subway restaurants. We exceeded our initial goal of 500 signatures, and are pushing on towards our next goal of 15,000 signatures. More signatures will greatly strengthen our voice and our position while making our request to corporate. I hope you'll share the petition with at least one more person each to help us reach our next goal! I'm continuing to hear from people around the world about variations in the policy: many countries ban plastic, requiring stores to use paper or cloth bags instead. Other stores already ask if people want a bag (a good sign!). Many of you have also suggested that Subway wrap sandwiches in recycled paper. Thank you again for your support and enthusiasm!
