I would love it if you would expand the Brita and other plastic recycling to your Washington State stores, specifically my local ones in downtown Seattle and the Roosevelt District.

I'm with Holly. Bring it to Seattle. You know the NW will recycle.

I just found out about this when I picked up the April calendar at Whole Foods today! I am so excited. I placed a box in my office so my coworkers could bring in their #5s to recycle!

Could you please let me know when Gimme 5 is coming to Southern California (in particular, the Los Angeles area). Is there a list of "future locations". I am saving my #5 plastics but am trying to decide whether to mail them in or wait until I can drop them off. Thanks! Is there an info sheet I could print out and give to the customer service desk at my store so they know what to do to get the program started? Thanks, again! Great program!

I have been saving my yogurt, cream cheese, and margerine tubs for years rather than throw in the trash since we don't recycle them in San Diego, just waiting for recycling to catch up with this. I would love to see my local San Diego Whole Foods market start taking these!

I hope the Whole Foods Market in Pasadena, CA will be added to the Gimme 5 program soon.

Please, please put a Gimme 5 box in the Short Pump, VA Whole Foods. I have a box of #5 plastics waiting for it.

I am happy to see a place to send #5 plastics. I am disappointed to see that there are not stores in the Atlanta, GA area to accept them. Please add the GA stores! Until then, I will mail them.

Please add this program to the Jenkintown, PA store! I'm estatic that there is a place for #5 plastics. I've been accumulating them and have more containers than I need, but don't want to throw them in the landfill. Thanks!

Charleston, SC needs Gimme 5 -- Please! We're fortunate to have Whole Foods, but we would really appreciate a #5 outlet other than Lowcountry marsh, vital rivers and our amazing Atlantic ocean!

These plastic containers are not recyclable in NYC and there aren't any convenient drop off locations available. I'm so happy that Whole Foods is starting this program! However, the Chelsea location, where I shop everyday, currently does not collect. Please add it to the list!!! Thanks!

I would love to see the Gimme 5 program at my local stores in Washington state: Bellevue and Redmond. We are lucky and cann recycle #5 tubs in our area, but not lids. Thank you for supporting this program!

I love the Whole Foods in Jenkintown, PA, but I'm disappointed by its exclusion from this program. Please bring the Gimme 5 program to PA!

Please include Washington DC, Northern Virginia and Maryland locations. DC and Nova/MD residents are hip to recycle!

I'd love to see this program in the Cincinnati store! We don't have #5 recycling in our community..

Wonderful program, long in coming. However, what is stopping Whole Foods from offering it through ALL its stores? I live in KY close to OH, and yet neither state is on the list. Yet our local main recycler, like most, does not take plastic from other that #s 1 & 2. Hence my concern. I realize this is a new program and hopefully it will expand across the country, but I think it would behoove Whole Foods to offer it everywhere, not just in the most environmentally-conscious areas. Please consider.

Pls start to recyle #5's at your OH stores, specifically the University Hts. store. It would be such a convenience. Thank you.
