Hi Ford,

All stores do charge for the use of their bags - we just don't see that added
a separate line item on our receipts. And unfortunately, they don't advertise
the fact that using our own bags will get us a nickel/bag back.

Hi all,

Obviously, if we're striving for ZeroWaste, reuseable bags is the answer. I
wish more stores would reward people for doing it, at least by charging for
the use of the store's bags.
