ROCHESTER, N.Y. — A little more than one-quarter (28%) of adults say their supermarket is doing something to promote or encourage activities that help ensure the long-term well-being of the environment, while 16% say their supermarket is not doing anything, according to a new survey by Harris Interactive here. Even for those supermarkets that may be doing things to help the environment, over half (56%) of adults are not sure what their supermarket is doing, said the survey. This is even higher in the Midwest, where more than three in five (63%) are not sure. However those in the West and East are more likely to say their supermarkets are doing something (36% and 33%, respectively). About one-quarter of all Americans (26%) would like to see their supermarket adopt environmentally friendly packaging to help the environment, while 18% say supermarkets should recycle plastic bags and 16% say they should offer permanent cloth shopping bags. One in six (15%) adults would like to see supermarkets offer glass, bottle and cardboard recycling, while 8% say they should have more green in their parking lots.
