    • RobertM Retired Master General Electrician Where we shop at one store, BJ's Wholesale Club, they don't give ANY bags, paper or plastic. They have the boxes that their stock came in, piled in an area for customers, but we take our tote sacks, which ar reusable.

When we get an abundance of plastics, we donate them to the food pantries and roadside stands for re-use.
