Lunds & Byerlys stores use nothing but large, plastic bags for their grocery pick up. 

We are petitioning for the use of paper only in our grocery pick up. 

During the COVID pandemic, grocery pick up has become commonplace. Lunds & Byerlys uses nothing but very large plastic bags when they should be using biodegradable paper.

Plastic bags are difficult and costly to recycle, there is virtually no market for the recycled material, and most end up on landfill sites where they take around 300 years to photodegrade (longer if not exposed to light). They break down into tiny toxic particles that contaminate the soil and waterways and enter the food chain when animals accidentally ingest them.

We can affect change as consumers and we want to end the use of single plastic at the source.
