DICK'S Sporting To Eliminate All Single-use Plastic Bags By 2025 - Quick Facts

Omni-channel sporting goods retailer DICK'S Sporting Goods, Inc. (DKS) announced Tuesday two major actions to help create a future free of single-use plastic bags.

It has committed to remove all single-use point-of-sale plastic bags from its stores by 2025 and a partnership with Closed Loop Partners' Center for the Circular Economy.

Single-use plastic bags are typically made from fossil fuel-derived virgin plastic and are among the top 10 items found on beaches and waterways worldwide.

DICK'S has been working to reduce its environmental footprint with a recycling rate of 70% for its retail stores and operations.

DICK'S has now joined the 'Consortium to Reinvent the Retail Bag' of leading retailers to identify, test and implement sustainable solutions to replace single-use plastic bags through the Beyond the Bag Initiative. Founding partners include CVS Health, Target and Walmart, as well as Kroger and Walgreens.
