Pennsylvania
We, the undersigned, support a statewide ban on the provision by retail stores of non-compostable plastic bags and we urge statewide elected officials to pass legislation to that effect. This action will promote the health and safety of wildlife and watersheds, protect the natural beauty of our communities, conserve our oil supply, increase the longevity of landfill space, and reduce trash management costs to taxpayers.

We're all thrilled about the impending opening of Whole Foods in Glen Mills!  Did you know that they have voluntarily banned plastic bags and adhere to many other policies within the 3 R's: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.  Every employee "strives to honor this golden rule of environmental stewardship."
