Whole Foods to end plastic bags by April Earth Day

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Whole Foods Market Inc said on Tuesday that it will aim to end the use of disposable plastic grocery bags in all of its 270 U.S., Canada, and United Kingdom stores by April 22, Earth Day.

The grocer, which features natural and organic foods, said it hoped shoppers would bring their own reusable bags, but it would offer 100 percent recycled paper grocery bags when needed.
