Target, CVS testing reusable bag rental system in New Jersey

Target and CVS are testing a reusable bag rental system called Goatote at select stores in New Jersey, following the state’s ban on single-use paper and plastic bags that went into effect earlier this month, according to a press release last week.  

Shoppers use their smartphones to scan a QR code at a Goatote kiosk to take as many bags as needed and then return them within 30 days to any kiosk. 

The pilot comes at a time when retailers are trying to find alternatives to single-use bags as a growing number of cities and states look to curb their use.
