It’s time for Trader Joe’s to ditch the plastic. The U.S. grocery store chain is known for its affordable organic and specialty food offerings, but also known for its insistence on putting plastic on everything. This includes everything from fruits and vegetables such as cucumbers and bell peppers, to soaps, and prepackaged meals. Back in 2019, Trader Joe’s announced it would supposedly roll back on its plastic use. However, since then, shoppers throughout the country haven’t noticed a difference in their plastic use. We, as consumers, must hold them accountable for the promise.

Single-use plastic packaging is one of the most wasteful plastic items. Trader Joe’s has an opportunity to set an amazing example for other grocery stores by taking plastic pollution seriously and making it a top priority to become a more eco-friendly company.
