Tell Costco: It’s time to move beyond plastic

Dear Costco CEO W. Craig Jelinek,

Costco has received an “F” for its excessive plastic use. Although consumers can buy nearly everything they may need in your stores, it comes at the cost of bringing home plenty of unnecessary plastic.

Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our environment and threaten public health for hundreds of years. Yet when we shop at Costco, we can’t help but bring home a mountain of unwanted plastic packaging.

Enough is enough. Costco can reduce its plastic waste and even set a precedent for other wholesale stores to follow by eliminating its use of single-use plastic packaging.

We’re calling on Costco to move beyond plastic by taking single-use plastic packaging off its shelves.
