I recently visited Hawaii, and plastic grocery bags are banned in the entire state. In fact, if I'm not mistaken, paper grocery bags are as well!

We went to a supermarket for a few items, and everyone was either loading purchases into shopping bags they'd brought from home, or just wheeling their carts out to their cars and loading their purchases into their cars.

Here in NY, Costco and Ikea are the only stores I know that don't supply bags.
