Fresh and Easy: No More Plastics!

    1. Petition by

If Fresh and Easy wants to maintain a true green image, they should be willing to part with the plastic that litters the shelves! The most vexing issue with this chain and thier affected "environmentally-freindly" stance is that nasty plastic wrap and other packaging that cannot be recycled that defiles the produce, bread and other sections of the store.

There are alternatives out there: paper wraps, true cellophane, and bio-plastic wraps, such as this one:

I realize that there is a heavy switching cost to this, but there is a cost on the environment that will be more devastating than anything your company's pockets will ever feel.

      OVER PACKAGING MIGHT SERVE ITS PURPOSE, BUT ITS PURPOSE IS NOT GREATER THAN THAT OF OUR ENVIRONMENTS HEALTH!

      i made this petition because it honestly insults me that a company can claim to have a green image, but still use non-recyclable types of plastics on the produces that it sells, and unnecessarily wrap all of the produce it sells in these hard-to-dispose of containers. this is something i expect out of a company like Wal-Mart, which we know that they don't care about anything but their pockets... but a company that supports "green" so outwardly, and even states so on their website... well... it's quite confusing as to why they use these products.
