Plastic Bag Charge Claimed as a Tax.

Posted on December 30, 2011 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations

This is not a tax by any measure.  A consumer has the option to bring in their reusable bag and not pay any fee. Also with no local govt getting any of the revenue how is that construed as a tax?

This company needs to face up they are making a product whose days are numbered. We don’t want those bags anymore is what the people are saying.  Hilex needs to understand this for their long term survival, not just the current CEO’s outlook.   The company can either spend their cash filing and arguing false lawsuits which is a very short term outlook, or they can invest their cash in products of the future that will bring them long term returns.  This is business 101 folks.
