UConn Co-Op Bookstore PlasTax Support sign now

Background information:

This petition will seek to gain support to allow the UConn Co-Op Bookstore to discourage customers from excessive consumption of plastic bags by using a PlasTax, which will closely resemble the PlasTax currently used in Ireland. The PlasTax involves charging customers $0.25 per plastic bag taken at the register. "First of all, the purpose [of the PlasTax] is to change consumer behavior, not to generate revenue; moving habits from mindless consumption to reducing and reusing. [In Ireland], consumption has dropped approximately 90\%, from 1.2 billion to 230 million plastic bags per year. Approximately 18,000,000 LITERS OF OIL HAVE BEEN SAVED due to reduced production of plastic bags." (Reusable Bags Fact Page - reusablebags.com/facts.php)

The efforts here are a part of a much larger picture to CONSUME LESS, CONSERVE MORE. We can make a difference!

Petition:

Dear UConn Co-Op Bookstore Management,

We, the Undersigned, are supportive of a PlasTax of $0.25 per plastic bag in the UConn Co-Op Bookstore. We would like the money made off of this PlasTax to go to environmental organizations at The University of Connecticut to further benefit environmental causes. We ask that the community be made aware if and when a PlasTax would be initiated and for the Bookstore to provide an affordable, convenient alternative to the plastic bags. We feel that the PlasTax is a sustainable and justifiable solution to the over-consumption of plastic bags.

Sincerely,

The Undersigned
