Ikea to charge for plastic bags

Ikea is to become the UK's first major retailer to charge its customers for plastic bags, in an effort to tackle waste and environmental damage.

This is a pretty good idea. It's nice to see a big company trying something like this. Although, Ikea is not as squeaky clean as I once thought, according to an article I saw in The Economist this month. So while this doesn't make up for some of their questionable business practices, at least they are leveraging their power for some good. Hopefully more companies around the world will follow their example.
