Letter to Trader Joe's
As a former loyal customer, I wanted to let you know, my family tries to avoid plastic packaging and since I have a hard time finding any plastic free food products at TJs, I started shopping at QFC, Safeway and PCC instead.
I would like to buy plastic-free produce (cabbage, salad, zucchini, carrots,...), also bread, rolls, cereal, nut butter, nuts, pasta, snacks and treats for my kids from Trader Joe's like I used to do, if you would offer open vegetable, switch to paper packaging or find a biodegradable alternative to all your plastic packaging.
I read your sustainable plan but offering recyclable plastic is not enough. Eliminating plastics is the right thing to do and the zero waste movement is growing fast. Looking forward to your standard text reply. :-)
