Sue. L. requested that I post this. Look what they are doing to curtail the use of plastic bags. Wonderful for those of you who shop with these retailers.

Nice initiative. Where I live in Ontario, Canada, we have to pay 5 cents for plastic bags in most stores. Some stores who still give bags for free will give you 3 cents if you bring your own bags. Thank you Christeen.

More companies need to get on board & quit offering plastic.

Thank you so much for posting this Christeen! We really need to get behind companies that take the environment seriuosly and try to be good corporate citizens. I would also like to give kudos to Half Price Books for asking if you even want a bag, instead of automatically putting your purchase in one.

Thank-You Sue and Christeen !! This is an "AWESOME COMPANY" !! In my area of Pa. we have 4 stores and I shop at all of them !!!! I bought a reusable bag from the store the first time I went there and I have used it ever since !!!! I leave my reusable bags in the car and that way I have them with me at all times......As I carry them into the house I wash them as necessary and keep taking them back out to the car when I leave again......It's just like any other routine !!!! PLEASE LOOK INTO THESE STORES.....YOU CAN SELL BACK BOOKS TOO !!!!

This is one of my favorite stores! The only reason I don't go there more is that I have too many books, CD's, and DVD's already. But, I can usually find good presents for others there, at a great price.
(Whole Foods will also donate 5 cents to charity for each reusable bag you use, but you usually have to remind the checkers to do it.)
