Stop Trader Joe’s from Overusing Plastic!
They have such great food, and we all see that they are responsible enough to consider what we have to say. So why don’t we tell them!
Why was this made?
The average American produces about 5.91 lbs of trash a day, and only 1.51 lbs of that trash actually gets recycled.
If people want to live more sustainably by buying food from the bulk section of supermarkets and use reusable bags, right now Trader Joe’s is not an option, because it does not have bulk and it packages many of its items with unnecessary amounts of plastic.
Trader Joe’s has shown that it cares about what customers want and has already changed a few elements of its stores that negatively affected the environment. The chain, for example, introduced biodegradable produce bags and stopped using styrofoam.

Trader Joe's is already starting to change, so why don’t we show it that more people care, too!


This problem can be solved if Trader Joe's begins to slowly reduce plastic packaging and introduce more environmentally friendly materials.

Hi. I'm a 7th grader from Los Angeles, and I want to help make this change. This idea came to my mind when I saw a video about a person living a sustainable life, and I realized that doing this would be impossible if you shop at Trader Joe's, due to all the excess plastic and the fact that the supermarket doesn't offer bulk items. I decided to work on this problem for my Bar Mitzvah project, and am presenting this petition to my school. I am aware that there is already a big petition on this website that is working toward the same thing, and my petition is partially inspired by it.
