Dear John Mackey and Other Whole Foods Decision Makers,
I care a lot about the environment and I know you do, too. That’s what unites us, and that is why I do a lot of my shopping at Whole Foods. When I take a trip to your store, I’m always happy to buy the nice goodies in your bulk bins, and I always appreciate the fact that many of the meats and dairy products you sell come from healthy, free-range animals that are raised in an ethical and environmentally friendly way.
What I do not enjoy is the plastic scooper that I found in your 365 Everyday Value Laundry Power. As an advocate for reducing the plastic that this nation consumes, as well as someone who wants to be nice to the Earth, I spent a lot of time hunting around
So my plea to you is this. Please stop selling your 365 laundry power with a plastic scooper!
If you do this, I will continue buying your detergent. For the time being, though, I won’t be buying it again. I am switching to Ecover brand laundry powder, which comes with a convenient and biodegradable cardboard scooper.
Oh, and if you remove the plastic scooper, please contact me so that I can let all of my blog readers know. To read my blog, which contains lots of kind references to Whole Foods as well as a copy of this letter, visit http://lifelessplastic.blogspot.com.
