Wow, things have escalated quickly.
Or they could just offer paper bags. What is with liberals and their desire to shame everyone? https://t.co/baD8NgTCXi

It’s just what they do, and even AOC might approve of the supermarket’s strategy. However, this approach could backfire:
Unintended consequences in 3, 2, …

There are people who would like to see this approach taken by stores in the U.S., but first it should be thought through, because the “backfire” factor is high:
I would buy many packages of gum and put each one into its own bag because those look hilarious. https://t.co/5eFaTovq1H

I would pay extra for these bags. https://t.co/cHDAnEWYHo

Do they realise some people will probably end up using more plastic bags so they can 'collect 'em all'? (Yes, I am taking about me.) https://t.co/zBcVlEt9s1

I'll bet these become collector items. https://t.co/YlJ5HJooqc

They're just creating collectibles.

People will keep using them till they've collected the complete set. https://t.co/mp0kDQfePR

I want those bags so hard. I would drive so far to shop there.

Hmm. Maybe that was the store’s plan the whole time!
