Hats off to the government in Dublin

Read New York Times article

"Motivated by a Tax, Irish Spurn Plastic Bags"

Text quoted from New York Times:

"In 2002, Ireland passed a tax on plastic bags; customers who want them must now pay 33 cents per bag at the register. There was an advertising awareness campaign. And then something happened that was bigger than the sum of these parts."

Great stuff to emulate
