BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Don’t expect to have your items bagged at Walmart after June 30.

Walmart has announced that starting July 1, all Maine stores will convert to bagless.

The company says the decision is in alignment with the state’s ban on plastic bags that was postponed to July 1 due to the pandemic.

Walmart says the decision only further demonstrates the company’s commitment to advancing sustainable efforts that support people and the environment.

The initiative is part of Walmart’s ongoing efforts to target zero emissions in its global operations by 2040.
