Allow reusable containers for bulk items at Whole Foods

This petition had 761 supporters

In an effort to reduce waste to our landfills and oceans, the zero waste movement with over 100,000 thousand people strong worldwide, is gaining ground and becoming mainstream. People are saying NO to one-time use items, refusing plastic and purchasing glass or metal alternatives, and buying their items in bulk with reusable containers to banish food packaging. 

But now, the Amazon-owned Whole Foods won't allows reusable containers to be used in their bulk food sections. We can't let this happen. Those involved in the movement are nixing the convenience of prepackaged food; why remove the convenience of accessible bulk food? 

For some people, bulk food supplier alternatives are not available or transportation and accessibility may prohibit those alternatives from being accessed. Don't put up unnecessary barriers to the movement. 

Join me to ask Whole Foods and Amazon to allow reusable containers for their bulk food and deli items.

Some of the restrictions may be due to Health Department regulations. Please also contact them and ask to remove these regulations.
