DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: Does Wegmans’ chainwide ban on single-use plastic bags make business sense for the grocer? Are there other grocers that you expect to follow suit as a matter of company policy and not an act of compliance with local or state laws?
Interactive Edge’s CEO, Zel Bianco comments, featured on RetailWire’s Braintrust:
Yes, it makes total sense. We all need to chip in and take a stand. The amount of waste that plastic bags create each and every day is just horrible. Requiring us all to bring our own reusable bags to shop is not asking too much. We all need to do more not just at the grocery store but everywhere we shop. Whether for lunch or anywhere else we shop, plastic bags and containers should be phased out and we should encourage businesses to join the ban.
