The Great Debate: Seattle's Bag Tax

Posted on Tue, 08/04/2009 - 22:20

The Columbian writer Don Brunell just wrote a thoughful piece explaining the debate surrounding Seattle's bag tax.  You may recall that Seattle is the first city in the United States to put a tax on plastic carrier bags to its citizens.  According to Brunell, 70% of Seattle's residents oppose the tax.  His article focuses on other ways to implement reduced dependence on plastic bags.  Its a worth while read for those of us who don't live in Seattle!
