Taxes! They aren't all bad.
Check out this tax on plastic bags in our nations capital! In the article on www.earth911.com, they give us the low down on the tax. It has brought in almost a million dollars. Also it has reduced the number of plastic bags by 19 million!!!! Can you even believe that? WOW! Why can't we implement this all over the nation. It is one of the taxes that I can really get behind. Why not bring your own bag. Let's get out of the one time use mindset! Let's be reusers, let's be recyclers, let's all be more green. Of course, you can get a great unique cloth shopping bag at Threadbeaur's Shop. You don't have to wait until you are taxed for every plastic bag you use, you can start today making a difference. Keep track of the number of bags that you have not used. Let's count them together and see how much of a difference we can make.
