Cancelling Out Thrift

I purchased a bunch of drinks today and stated I didn’t need a bag as I was trying to prevent waste.  The cashier said she wished more people did that and then put 10 self-adhesive 1.5″ x 3″ “PAID” stickers on each of the 10 bottles of 20 oz Fuze I had purchased, nicely cancelling out any environmental gain.  I guess I need re-useable stickers.
