I know we're talking chicken feed in the grand scheme of things, but I really do think the plastic bag tax has been a success.

I read somewhere that the plastic bag tax was entirely ineffective for two reasons:
    - The "bags for life" that replaced disposable carrier bags use a lot more plastic than the product they replaced.
    - The sale of plastic bin bags has increaced.
