The small stalls in Djema el Fna market in Morocco.
Cab drivers.
Some small restaurants in Cambodia.

Basically, only the small vendors selling cheap souvenirs. Otherwise our experience has been that all the major tourist attractions and major sellers near them are very happy to have plastic.

Of course if you are going off on your own outside of the major tourist areas, that can be a different story.
In other words: The REALLY interesting places.
