If companies defaulted to not bagging instead of automatically bagging for one item, both business owners and environmentalists could be happy. How much money could companies save if they didn’t have to give a bag away for each single-item purchases? How many bags could be saved if we didn’t use them to carry single-item purchases?
It’d be an easy way for companies to claim ‘greenness’, and save me from having to ask not to have my item bagged every time. Because isn’t that what we’re all working toward? Not having to talk to anyone anymore in daily transactions?
