MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) — Kroger has teamed up with the Memphis Zoo to help reduce the use of plastic bags.
The partnership unveiled a specialty brand of reusable bags Wednesday designed with faces of some of the most favorite animals at the zoo.
This helps support the grocer’s zero waste plans, which includes a mission to end waste in local communities by 2025.
“It really fits in closely with our sustainability initiatives to help reduce single-use plastics entering the environment and the waste stream. Kroger is going to talk a little about their zero-waste campaign, so it’s a perfect partnership, tie-in together,” said Michele Correia, Director of Development with the Memphis Zoo.
The bags will be sold exclusively at mid-south Kroger stores until September or while supplies last.
