In Ireland, we pay 22 cent of a Euro to the Gov. for the payment of a plastic bag in shops ,
every body carries their own bags ,paper bags are free..

Ban plastic bags and these obnoxious ads that show up here. I have often said that instead of giving 5 or 10 cents back it would be better to make people pay. They don't care about getting money back but if they have to put it pout they might think twice.
Go Abby. It is a great mitzvah you are doing.
