Tax on plastic bags in Ireland

Plastic bag use in Ireland has gone way down after the implementation of a 33 cent tax on plastic grocery bags.I don't know if people here are ready for something like that or not but I think it would be good idea,most local stores now have reusable bags available to buy for less than a dollar and I hardly ever use plastic bags myself any more.

I have been up to the red pine landfill several times when we had something to big for the garbage truck and the sight of those mountains of garbage is enough to make anyone want to reduce their waste.
