Plastic bags are a huge issue for our environment.  Up to 80% of all plastic bags end up in the ocean.  When they are in a landfill it can take up to 500 years for the plastic to degrade.  Target is a brand leader and can lead their industry to change by charging for plastic bags.  If they start off by charging $0.10 per bag, they can see the impact and eventually diminish plastic bags all together.  When there is a cost on plastic bags, individuals are less likely to pay for it.  Take Sam's Club or Costco for example, not everything is bought in bulk there but everything is bought without a bag to carry it out in.  Target will benefit from this change as well because they will spend less on plastic bags. Individuals can instead look for alternatives:

1) Carry their items without a bag

2) Bring a reusable bag 

Many animals are suffering because of our selfishness.  Let's start by bringing change to Target and having other corporations follow.
