Plastic bag recycling bin outside their store. Maybe it's because Safeway still bags with plastic bags (only stores outside of San Francisco), but still, there are plenty of foods at Whole Foods wrapped in some sort of plastic. The foods packaged in plastic that can't be recycled make me cringe. The plastic bags with loaves of bread inside make me kind of ill too. The rate at which they accumulate under my kitchen sink is shocking. Not to mention the twisty ties, which can't be recycled because of the metal. I save them, but I have so many now, I need a good art project. In my ideal world, I'd live in France and pick up fresh bread daily with my bare hands, no packaging. And, on a side note, I asked a Whole Foods employee in Mill Valley where I could compost my muffin wrapper and he said that they didn't compost. Really!? Come on.
