Question regarding recycle bags

Hello, newbie to the forum here. We are in the planning stages of our first trip to Maui. I understand there are no plastic bags in the stores on the island. Is there a place to buy Hawaii decorated recycle bags? Walmart? Kmart? ABC stores? If we can find some pretty ones that will remind us of our trip afterwards I would be happy to buy several. Or should I just bring plain boring ones from home? Thanks in advance!

Aloha Linda M,

You're smart to plan ahead for the shopping bags! I LOVE the ones at Foodland! I have several, including a really cute insulated one. They make me smile every time I use them here at home. :-) Here's the link to see their cute bags:

Everyone sells them, my wife also loves the Foodland ones. Just why the wives love these things I'll never know!

LOL!!!! Oh Clint! I laughed out loud when I read your post! My DH says the very same thing! I have a BUNCH of them. I love buying them while traveling to places I love. I just got back from Target for a groceries/supplies run, and had my Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm one, Foodland ones, an Aulani one, Pikes Place Market one, etc., etc, etc.!!! Hahahahahahaha!

Clint - every time I go grocery shopping here, I get to relive my memories of Maui, just by bringing along my shopping bag that I bought there ... simple pleasures :))

I was at Powell's books in Portland 2 weeks ago and saw a lady with a Foodland bag. :)
