What can we do to tax shopping bags?

    I suppose if you had a button on the register at the supermarket which would take into consideration “paper or plastic” and charge the customer an insignificant penny or two, this might do the trick. Not sure this is much of a deterrent though. It might actually make people feel more entitled to use them if they know it means they’re paying a tax.

    In some cities in the US, customers are charged a small amount for using the store’s bags. This fee, usually 5 to 20 cents, goes towards environmental efforts for the city. If you would like to see something similar in your city, try writing to your local politician. Cities are likely to support the idea because it means more revenue, and this is something most areas are lacking at the moment.
