Tag to use for  bulk purchasing, if a shop offers products without packaging.

This is meant as a principle. Not every supermarket that sells bananas without plastic bags around them is a bulk purchase shop.

How to map

The bulk_purchase=* tag can be added to a shop=*, often added to : shop=supermarket or shop=convenience.
