WESTLAKE, Ohio — Giant Eagle is scheduled to announce its plan to eliminate single-use plastic by 2025.

The company is scheduled to hold a news conference at 11:00 a.m. from the Westlake Market District.

This effort will be complemented by a chainwide plan to incentivize customer use of reusable bags throughout the company's footprint.

Starting in January, Cuyahoga County will put the ban into effect. The county doesn't plan to enforce the ban until July, giving retailers a six-month grace period to adjust.
