‘Unintended Consequence’ of the Plastic Bag Tax; Shopping Baskets Going Missing From CT Stores – NBC Connecticut

The Connecticut Food Association is calling it an “unintended consequence” of the state’s tax on plastic bags; Retailers are losing their plastic shopping baskets after people take the baskets to their cars and never return them.

“I don’t think a lot of people foresaw that the baskets would start disappearing when the law went into effect,” said Brett Davis, store manager of the Geissler’s Supermarket in Windsor.

Davis said the store has lost about 20 plastic baskets since they started charging for bags at check-out.

“They just say ‘oh can I take it out to my car?'” explained Davis. “And quite a few of them have not returned.”
