I commend the PV Town Council for this decision. I grocery shop almost daily and have a collection of reusable bags that make the trip to the market with me, loaded at point of sale, unloaded at home and then returned to the car for yet another shopping trip. Keeping a supply in the car means I have them when I shop at non-grocery retailers as well. So many stores sell, at a convenient price, reusable bags, that it's very easy to get in the habit of always having one on hand or take advantage of purchasing one that can be used again.
