Question of the Day: Walmart nixes paper bags


Here is the Question of the Day:

Starting next month, Walmart stores in Delaware will no longer provide single-use bags at checkout. Customers will have the opportunity to purchase multiuse bags or to bring their own. Walmart says efforts such as this in several states will save it from using more than 1.2 billion plastic and paper bags each year. The company also reports that it has adjusted checkout lines to accommodate multiuse bags. How are you adjusting to the switch to reusable bags?
