Kroger: plastic bag recycling
Thank you for the excellent service and high quality products Kroger offers. It is no surprise that Kroger is the number one grocery store in the Atlanta area. Recently, I noticed that Kroger baggers began using only one bag for all but the heaviest items. Thank you! The extra bags contributed to waste, pollution and higher costs, so I hope this is a chain-wide change.
To further reduce waste and pollution, please place plastic bag recycling bins at your stores. This would be a valuable service to Kroger customers. Publix and WalMart (numbers two and three in Atlanta) have bins in their stores where customers can recycle grocery store bags. Please don't force Kroger shoppers to go to Publix to recycle our Kroger plastic bags.
Although I use cloth bags to carry some of my groceries, I still need a place to recycle excess Kroger bags. Please provide a place to do that at neighborhood Krogers.
Thank you for considering this idea.
