New Seasons and New Leaf aim for single-use water bottle elimination by Earth Day

Read the full story in Grocery Dive.

New Seasons Market and New Leaf Community Markets, two grocers under West Coast-based Good Food Holdings, plan to stop selling still water bottled in single-use plastic, fiber, aluminum or glass containers of 1 liter or less, according to an emailed press release.

The single-use water bottle elimination will begin on April 22, Earth Day, and will remove more than 250,000 bottles annually. 

The initiative is part of a series of sustainability goals for the company, which include cutting back operational waste and energy consumption, as the grocery industry continues to ramp up efforts to combat waste and emissions.
