Kroger says it will phase out single-use plastic bags nationwide by 2025.

The move is part of The Kroger Company’s Zero Hunger | Zero Waste commitment, the company announced Thursday in a news release. The initiative, according to Kroger’s website, is to “end hunger in our communities and eliminate waste in our company by 2025.”

Instead of plastic bags, the grocery chain plans to transition to reusable bags to decrease plastic waste.
