Dear EarthTalk: How are American supermarket chains doing in regard to cutting back on single-use plastics? — B. Weston, Jacksonville, Florida
Not very well, if you ask Greenpeace. The activist group compares 20 U.S. grocery chains by their commitments and actions to reduce single-use plastics in its recently released “Shopping for Plastic 2019” report. Each and every chain — even those you would think are leading the charge on reducing plastic — gets a failing score.
