How about 10 cents a plastic bag?

Loved reading an editorial in the New York Times suggesting that retail and grocery stores charge ten cents per plastic bag, "Ten cents a bag, That's about right."  Given how many of these bags find themselves littered throughout our landscape, and that they my virtually never be fully decomposed, this seems to be a step in the right direction.

I would also like to see a ban on polystyrene, commonly referred to as styrofoam.  These cups and take out containers also have a very short time of use, but potentially a lifetime littering our landscapes.
