How can grocery stores be used to try and reduce food waste in the United States?

    Grocery stores should stop using plastic bags, which are giant pollutants, both in their production and in their disposal. Some grocery stores offer plastic bag recycling, but a more productive solution is to not use plastic bags at all.

    Another great option, which would be hard for large grocery chains, but works for local grocery stores and co-ops, is to only provide local products. Most grocery stores have huge carbon foot prints because of their shipping, be it accross the country or overseas. Moving food products gives off a lot of emissions and harms the environment, while encouraging other unsustainable industries, like the meat industry.
