After buying a $290 microcamera I was asked if I wanted a bag for it. I answered yes and resignedly offered to pay for it.
Very chirpy, the sales girl answered "no, we have plastic ones now". Target has obviously decided it's worth paying for the bag so as not to become a picture of resentment in their customers' homes.
Sure Target can afford it when they're making $290 sales, but I still don't think Coles and Woolies can really afford to be reminding me that they've cost shifted onto me in the name of the environment.
