Please ask your local Whole Foods to participate in Brita filter collection!

12/09/08: As we announced in our 11/18/08 update, Whole Foods Markets will be collecting used Brita filters for recycling as part of Preserve's Gimme 5 program beginning in January. However, we have recently learned that each individual Whole Foods Market manager can decide whether or not to participate in the program.

If you would like to be able to return your used Brita filters, as well as all other #5 plastics, to your local Whole Foods, please contact the store near you and let the manager know.

Contact info for all stores in the U.S. and Canada can be found here:

This program will work best if customers are able to return their filters while shopping rather than having to mail them in.

I wrote to the Whole Foods on the Bowery in NYC. This is a great idea! Thanks.
