Harris Teeter - Checkout bagging

Harris Teeter uses excessive plastic bags for checkout. I regularly shop in the Belmont HT and regularly observe this in my own shopping as well as that of others. It is not unusual to have one item placed in one bag. This includes quarts of milk, frozen dinners, one pound containers of fresh fruit, etc.

If the intention is to crap up the environment with plastic that will be here in 500 years, mission accomplished. Otherwise, I don't see why so many plastic bags are used.

There are some national grocery chains that have or will be prohibiting use of plastic bags including Kroger by 2025. Why does HT do the same?
