Lara Watrous started this petition to Shoprite

We've all disavowed plastic bags in favor of canvas, but it's time to take a look at what's inside of our bags. It's exceptionally difficult to shop plastic-free at ShopRite. We live in a world where we've detected microplastics everywhere from the air in the remote Pyrenees Mountains to inside the bodies of Indian cows. All of our beaches and roadsides in the U.S. are littered with bits of plastic. Nothing is pristine anymore and our decades of plastics are leaching into our soils. Furthermore, very little of it is successfully recycled  - even if it's not single-use.

But going plastic-free is also exceptionally difficult in modern, U.S. life. Try going grocery shopping without purchasing products wrapped in plastic or without plastic windows or bands. It's hard if not impossible depending on what you're trying to purchase.

This petition is to show the large east coast grocery store ShopRite, that it's customers want them to A) stock more plastic-free options B) Make their ShopRite brand products plastic-free and C) provide more bulk and refillable shopping options and allow customers to use their own containers.

Currently, a plastic-free life is hard to obtain and almost elitist due to the barriers. If large grocers like ShopRite can bring these products and options into circulation it will drive innovation and cost reduction. It will also make shoppers more aware of their own plastic consumption. We need to move towards greener solutions for the benefit of our local communities and the world for generations to come.
