A Plastic Bag Tax is a policy where the use of plastic shopping bags is taxed, thus discouraging their use and making sure that less bags end up littering the environment.

This tax brings in a small amount of income and is favored by Environmentalists. Capitalists see the tax as unnecessary state interference.
