Hot or Not? Plastic Bag Fee in NYC

Hot or Not? Plastic Bag Fee in NYC

According to the New York Times, if things go Mayor Michael Bloomberg's way, New York City residents could look forward to paying 6 cents for plastic bags when they forget their reusable tote. This is the NYC Mayor's latest attempt to discourage people from using plastic bags. As a bonus, the fee could generate $16 million a year for the city (assuming New Yorkers aren't sufficiently discouraged by a 6 cent/per bag fee).
