Please bring Gimme 5 to the Greenville, SC Whole Foods store. I have a bag of yogurt containers ready to drop off. I know of others doing the same thing. Please let us help prevent these from going into the landfills!!

We NEED Gimme 5 Recycling in Durham, NC! The city cannot recycle #5 containers, and the Durham store sells tons of them! Please help us! Amy

I would like to see number 5 recycled in the San Diego area. There is a Whole Foods store that I shop at in La Jolla which would be great! I'd like to know what they make with the recycled plastic. I also want to know if the GJimme 5 program takes straws and plastic silverware. I have read that they are often number 5 as well. I would like the kids at the local schools to get involved, so please tell me if you will start a Gimme 5 program in La Jolla (and if so, when). Thanks, Rhonda

Please bring Gimme 5 to the Cincinnati Whole Foods. Currently we can't recycle 5s in Cincinnati currently. Hope to see it soon! Thanks, Christine Bernhard

Please start the Gimme 5 program at the Whole Foods in Durham or Chapel Hill, North Carolina! There is no place to recycle #5 plastics anywhere! It hurts so bad to throw all the #5 plastics away in the trash because there's no place to put them! Thank so much!

I would love to have the Tucson stores included in the #5 plastic recycling program. I never realized how many kinds of containers are made from this plastic. I would be happy to be able to take them somewhere.

I'm also very disappointed that no Colorado Whole Foods store is n the list of particiating locations. That's a shame! Please add a Denver, CO store soon! Many thanks, Bibi

I am so glad that I will be able to take my #5 plastics to Whole Foods! I kept having to throw away all of the #5 stuff that we use instead of recycling because there was just no where near me that did anything with it. This is a wonderful program! Kudos again to Whole Foods. Crystal

Awesome!!! I have boxes and boxes of the stuff and I would like to be able to recycle it in Las Vegas, NV. I also have collections of PVC, LDPE, and PS, if something could be done about that too =)

Seattle, WA has recycling, food waste, and yard waste composting programs for just about everything, but not for Brita filters yet. It is one of the few things still left in my garbage. I would love to see this program get up and running in Seattle.

I didn't see the Marietta HFM on the list of locations for #5 plastic recycling. It would be popular. Not only are yogurt and cottage cheese containers type #5, but many fast-food drink cups are as well.

Seattle stores should be leading the way with this wonderful Gimme 5 project. There are now 3 seattle stores and last month when i called all of them, none had a Gimme 5 drop off bin. in fact, most of those on phone at the stores didn't know what the heck i was talking about. not cool! if Alabama stores can have this, Seattle sure should! And, maybe this Action Project could help us lobby the prescription medicine bottle makers to STOP making containers from such brittle plastic. why don't we just switch to something like tylenol bottles that are easily recyclable? time for a plastic revolution across the board!

We have no place in Santa Fe, and it seems in all of New Mexico, for recycling #5 plastics. Sure would be great to have the Gimme 5 program come to our city and state!

It is fantastic that you're doing this. Thank you. Will you please encourage the Santa Fe, NM store to participate? Thanks again.
