Plastic Bag Tax A Workable Solution
Eco Friendly Daily
MARCH 20, 2013
The goal of the Plastax is to get people to stop using plastic bags in favor of using re-usable cloth or mesh bags. The Irish did indeed start using re-usable bags to tote their groceries home. If we instituted the Plastax it would have the same effect as it had in Ireland, and the total amount of plastic used and discarded would remain exactly the same. In Delta we pay $66 per year per household for garbage removal.
