Dollar General has joined the “Beyond the Bag” initiative, which aims to make the plastic disposable retail bag obsolete, as a lead partner for the value retail sector, the discount grocer announced in a press release on Thursday.
As a lead partner, Dollar General will explore recommended solutions for the value retail sector that come out of the Beyond the Bag Initiative, as well as direct the sector’s priorities and activities within the program’s operations.
Albertsons also recently joined the initiative, which is run by the Consortium to Reinvent the Retail Bag. The retailers are the latest ones to sign onto the initiative, which launched last summer with the help of founding partners CVS Health, Target and Walmart and has since added several more grocery partners.
