‘A Brief History of the 5-cent Bag Tax’ Video.

A Brief History of the 5-cent Bag Tax “A Brief History of the 5-cent Bag Tax” video was created by DC based sketch comedy group Dunk Your Bagel for American University’s Eco-Comedy Video Competition. It’s a must see for any city government considering a plastic grocery bag fee. It turns out that gut punches, rat eating and being sprayed in the eyes with Windex won’t deter people from asking for a plastic grocery bag the way a $.05 fee will. [Planetizen]
