Sobeys eliminating plastic bags from stores starting tomorrow


Starting tomorrow (January 31, 2020) plastic grocery bags will no longer be available at Sobeys stores. Instead, they are asking shoppers to remember to bring their re-usable grocery bags. Paper bags will be available for 10 cents. Plastic produce bags will still be available. Sobeys is the first national grocery chain to eliminate plastic bags. In their July 31, 2019 press release Sobeys stated “the change will take 225 million plastic grocery bags out of circulation at Sobeys’ 255 locations across Canada each year.”
