Add the lifetime costs of plastic package to the sale price with an environment tax

At the moment those causing the horrendous environmental damage from plastic packaging are not responsible for contributing to the costs of removing their toxic waste. By taxing products with the true costs of their packaging, manufacturers, retailers and customers will have an incentive to use environmentally friendly packaging and remove unnecessary packaging. The responsible makers, shopkeepers and customers will have the benefit of knowing that there rivals will have to pay the true costs of their "cheap" plastic film. The monies raised from this tax will be used to clean up the mess we are leaving for our children and grandchildren.
