Tell Costco: It's time to move beyond plastic packaging
Costco CEO W. Craig Jelinek,
We, the undersigned, urge you to eliminate single-use plastic packaging from your stores.
The plastic pollution crisis poses an enormous threat to our health and to our environment. Certain chemicals found in plastic pollutants can disrupt endocrine systems, interfere with brain development, and cause cancer and birth defects.
To have a large and lasting impact, we're going to need supermarket stores like Costco to commit to getting rid of needless plastic. This will set a bold example for others in the industry to follow.
Nothing we use for a few minutes should threaten our health and pollute our future for hundreds of years. Please do all you can to curb Costco's plastic use.
