One Giant receipt

I went to the grocery store the other day. My local Giant, specifically. I bought 4 items:

-one 12 pack of Caffiene Free Diet Coke
-one bag of Rold Gold pretzil sticks
-two loaves of Home Pride Wheat bread

Upon checking out (in the ultra-cool "Self Checkout" lanes) I was presented with a receipt 25.75 inches in length:

Seriously, is it really necessary to blow that much paper? That's just stupid. If there's one thing I can't stand it's excessive packaging. But right behind that is excessive waste. Guess I gotta write an email to Giant and complain. I told myself that with the reelection of this administration, I'd be more active in my protests. May as well start with my "giant" receipt.
