Make plastic a LUXURY product, make plastic producers pay higher taxes and that'll add up, resulting to lesser usage and more innovation to use renewable containers.

The only time people pay attention to the environment is when it hurts their pocket book. 15 cents or more per plastic bag!!! Our town is banning them soon, work on that in your town too.
