QFC stores will eliminate single-use plastic bags

Read the full story at Grocery Dive.

QFC, a Washington-state grocery store under the Kroger umbrella, will stop offering single-use plastic bags starting April 1, the company announced in a press release.

The grocer will sell reusable bags, and through the month of April, QFC will donate $1 for each reusable bag sold in stores (up to $10,000) to The Nature Conservancy.

QFC is the first Kroger subsidiary to phase out plastic bags. The effort is part of Kroger’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste initiative, which outlines Kroger’s plans to eliminate single-use bags in all of its stores by 2025.
