Bag bill seems to be doing its job

Three months on and the District of Columbia food bag fee is reducing demand for disposable plastic and paper food bags, per DCist today.

January receipts for the fee are in — $149,432.27. That means about three million bags were used rather than the 22.5 million thought to be used in the District any given month.

It will be nice to see how this will shape up in six months. I’ll see if I can find original reports from D.C. government sources and will post them here.
