Villa managers jump on the plastic bag ban

This is both thoughtful and excellent marketing.

Carefree Getaways (and probably others) has stocked its villas with grocery totes, now that plastic bags are banned on St. John.

Well, kind of banned.

If you don’t bring your own totes, or buy some at the store, Starfish Market puts your groceries in very awkward, handle-less paper bags.

But St. John Gourmet Market is still spinning its carousel of double-bagging plastic.

I’m not sure what’s up with that. But bring your own totes. Stay at a Carefree villa and you’re already set!
