Grocery Shopping During the Pandemic

Grocery shopping during the pandemic – ideas to reduce single-use plastic waste:

  • Reusable shopping bags are currently not allowed in most stores. But you can skip the single-use bags — ask the store employees to place your items back in the cart, then wheel the cart to your car and load your groceries into your reusable bags.
  • If you do need bags, request recyclable paper instead of non-recyclable plastic.
  • Plastic bag/film drop-off is currently not available at most stores. Please save your clean and dry plastic film to drop off at a later time, or dispose of it in the trash cart.

Please do not put any plastic bags or plastic film in the recycling cart!
