Reusable bags for inmates with diabetic snacks

We have diabetic inmates at my prison, each day the inmates with diabetes get a snack. The snack is for when their blood sugar drops. We handout the snacks in brown paper bags. Why don’t we give the inmates reusable bags to use for their snacks? I know it doesn’t seem like much but the bag are thrown away or use for contraband every day. We could save millions ever year. The inmates would bring the bag back every day and we would fill it up. They would use those bag 365 days a year for their whole sentence.
