Green England

the Green England LogoThis is a useful site for those wishing to find green products, services and information. But the main reason I am posting it here and now is that they have started a national campaign to follow Ireland’s lead and place a 10p tax on all plastic bags. They have a petition here.

Now you might say, “Oh no, not another tax” and I would have some empathy with you, but the whole point about this particular tax is that its intent is to encourage people NOT to pay it. The criteria for success will be falling, not increasing, revenue.
