Bag it

The Big Apple’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg now wants to tax New Yorkers 5 cents for every plastic bag they take home from the grocery store. Officials say it will keep plastic bags out of landfills while raising at least $16 million for the city. They are as of yet, unsure which bags they will tax and how to collect it. I’m not sure if city dwellers will allow this to happen. Grocery chains in my area give me a five cent credit when I bring my reusable cloth bags.
