Sobeys to ditch plastic bags by 2020

CKTB - NEWS - Plastic Bags

Customers at a popular chain of grocery stores will soon have to BYOB - Bring Your Own Bag.

Sobeys officials have announced plans to completely ditch plastic bags in all stores by 2020.

Instead, customers are encouraged to bring their own bins or bags. 

Sobeys will also have paper bags on hand just in case you forget to bring your own.

This comes as many restaurants are getting rid of single use plastics like straws and stir sticks, and last month the federal government announced plans to ban things like plastic bags, cutlery, and plates by 2021.
