Whole Foods will stop using plastic bags

Whole Foods will stop using plastic bags, instead giving customers a choice between reusable bags or recycled paper. Here is an excerpt from the article:

The Whole Foods Market chain said Tuesday that it would stop offering plastic grocery bags, giving customers instead a choice between recycled paper or reusable bags.

A rising number of governments and retailers, including PCC Natural Markets in the Seattle area, are banning plastic bags, or discouraging their use, because of concerns about their environmental effect.
