Talk to a retailer about the amount of plastic items they sell

On July 23, while shopping at a local retail store, I noticed the amount of plastic items they sell in addition to some environmentally-friendly items (which I purchased). 4 days later I received an email from the store and was asked for an evaluation of my shopping experience. I completed the evaluation and included a comment about the amount of plastic items. A few hours later I received a call from the store's general manager. He acknowledged my comment about the amount of plastic items they sell and wanted to have further discussion about it. We even talked about the film A Plastic Ocean which he had seen. The general manager said he agrees with my concerns and their company has made efforts to stock more earth-friendly and sustainable products and will continue to do so. He said he would pass along my concerns to his superiors.
