Pretty normal now to not use grocery bags - good for environment


Since the law was changed and they have to charge for grocery bags, it is pretty common to see people take carts of groceries to car without bags. Many people try and bring their reusable bags, but sometimes people forget them.
It is better for the environment to not use disposable bags and who wants to pay money for them.

Incidentally, I was in Virginia about a month ago and they still use disposable bags there. I was a bit surprised they started automatically packing the groceries in disposable bags. I had to tell the checkout person not to use the disposable bags.
Although they don't charge for them, they are horrible for the environment.
