Whole Foods Will Eliminate Plastic Bags, Says "Bring Your Own"

Whole Foods says that by Earth Day 2008 they will be eliminating plastic bags and instead offer only paper bags or reusable bags made from recycled plastic bottles for $0.99.

You are invited to bring your own bags and get “a refund of at least 5 cents per bag.”

Do you like this idea?

We’re going all out for reusable! [Whole Foods] (Thanks, Corey!)
