IKEA Shopping Bag- Go Green

IKEA has 3 sizes of shopping bag. IKEA is promoting ‘Bag for Life’ for all the shopping bags purchased in IKEA where once the bag is worn off, purchaser can go back to IKEA to get it exchange for a new one. From 01July2011 onwards, IKEA will not be using any more plastic bags. Buyers will need to carry own shopping bags or purchase IKEA shopping bags. This is a good move towards going green.

We bought 2 RM1 shopping bags for JL and AL. I wondered how IKEA barcode scanner would be able to detect whether the shopping bags had been paid or not on our next visit?
