Jess Andrews started this petition to Walmart

When my family and I visited Florida in October (2019) we were disgusted to find that we could not take our own bags into Walmart, despite the promise that in April 2019 Walmart said they would be introducing reusable bags at the checkouts (there were none!).

Every few days we would emerge with a dozen plastic carrier bags, with no means to recycle them!  They use those turntable bag stations, so it's very difficult to ask the cashiers to break out of the normal cycle of filling the single use plastic carriers that are readily at their disposal... And if you do ask, they refuse! 

If the UK has taken action on this, why hasn't the USA?  Major supermarkets - like Walmart - need to be questioned and held responsible for looking after the environment! 

Reusable bags are a good start but an incentive not to use single use carrier bags needs to be made - put a charge on them!  Then the next step is removing them from the store altogether, but that petition is for another day.
