How can plastic bag addiction be cured? - BBC News
From Monday large shops in England will charge 5p for each plastic bag. But how did shoppers get so used to free carrier bags in the first place, asks Chris Stokel-Walker. //&! bit.ly/1RgOTfj - Perhaps the crisis of conscience has eased and people have got used to the idea of their wastefulness again. The charge is clearly needed. But will it work? And does it go far enough? [ 5p isn't a pain, 50p probably. because then its seen (perceived) as overpriced/rip-off. but the consumer does not see, is not aware of the actual current cost and long-term cost to the environment, ecology, and knock-on economic damage of cleaning it up in 20-30 years because we have to to save the planet! where are the behavioural economic experiments when you need them? ] - make video arguing for a 50p price tag and study from dan ariely to conduct such a study.
