IKEA to charge for plastic bags?

In a bold move, IKEA is apparently going to start charging customers for their normal plastic bags in their UK stores. They are also planning on switching to bio-degradeable bags and will lower the price of their re-usable bags. According to BBC News, IKEA emphasised that it would not make any money from the move since all the proceeds would be donated to the environmental organization Community Forests. No word yet on whether or not they will implement this in their US stores. What do you think of this? Would this motivate you to bring your own bag, or would you pay the extra charge for bags? What do you think of this idea? (via Positive Fanatics via BBC News)
