Kroger has a seven year plan. According to WILX-TV, this plan is about phasing out the grocery store chain's use of plastic bags by 2025.

Here's an amazing number. The Kroger Company, which is based in Cincinnati, Ohio, orders around 6-billion bags a year. That's billion with a B! This number of course makes sense when you find out that Kroger is the largest grocery store chain in America with over 27-hundred stores operating in 35 states and also the District of Columbia. Kroger operates a couple dozen grocery store chains under their umbrella.

That's a lot of stores, serving a lot of customers. So, you gotta have a lot of bags.

The elimination of plastic bags for the Kroger company will begin at it's QFC chain in Seattle, which is expected to completely phase out plastic bags by next year.
