Macy’s and Whole Foods are down with being green

Macy's now using biodegradable packing peanuts nutsby Cora Bledsoe

I was browsing my daily reader stuff and I came across this post from the Consumerist.

We’ve been talking a lot more around our team about finding ways to be more green and this happens to fit right in. It seems that Macy’s has decided to switch to biodegradable packing peanuts.

Another company also down with the green movement is Whole Foods. Of course, it fits right in with their culture. They’ve opted to stop using plastic bags altogether and are instead only using paper bags.

Check out this story about it on WashingtonPost.com.

  1. Ikea charges like .59 cents for their sturdy bags which can be re-used. They do not have free bags. Don’t use one, buy one or bring your own. Oh how I love Ikea.

  2. yeah! Props to Ikea for that!! We bought 6 bags from the Canton store, and they come in mighty handy in many ways, not just for shopping!
    I’ve also started carrying StupidPlasticBags(TM) in my car for when I stop at the grocery store unplanned. I hate those bags. I annoy every bagger I can by requesting paper. They pay me back with overloaded bags, but I don’t care — it’s just making me stronger! ;-)
