Whole Foods Market is doing its part to reduce plastic waste.
Responding to customer demands, the grocery chain will stop providing plastic straws to customers across all of its 500 stores in the United States.
Whole Foods claims to be the first national grocery chain to make this change.
That's not all. Whole Foods will also start using smaller plastic bags in the produce department. In addition, they plan to replace the hard plastic packaging for their grab and go rotisserie chickens.
The grocery chain will start offering paper straws in July however, plastic straws will still be available for customers with disabilities.
