Several environmental and consumer groups have launched a campaign to encourage Whole Foods to change its practices on plastic packaging.


             In a recent report by an advocacy group that looked at 50 companies, Whole Foods received an “F” for its efforts to eliminate single-use packaging from its store shelves.
