First Lucky Store Opens in San Francisco and Introduces Stiffer, Sturdier, Recyclable Plastic Grocery Bags
Yahoo News 07.27.07
Lucky opened its first of 72 new stores in San Francisco this week and will introduce reusable, recyclable plastic handle grocery bags, which are made from recycled plastic. The bags will retail for 25 cents each and will soon be available at all Lucky stores.
Our Take: With the popularity for reusable bags rising, we'll start to see more greenwashing by the retail industry. These reusable bags are actually produced by a plastic bag manufacturer, and made of only 20% recycled material. For some higher quality recycled bags, check out our recycled PET totes, made from 98% post-consumer recycled content!
