Wegmans will soon say ‘goodbye’ to single-use plastic bags chainwide

Read the full story at Grocery Dive.

Wegmans announced on Thursday it plans to no longer offer single-use plastic bags by the end of this year. 

To help customers transition over to reusable bags, Wegmans said it will start charging five cents per paper bag — a move the grocery chain said has been successful in New York and other markets where it has already worked to pivot shopper behavior. 

Wegmans joins other retailers in switching to more eco-friendly bag choices as legislation that cracks down on single-use plastic bags becomes more widespread.
