Kudos IKEA!

I was at the local IKEA on Friday, and saw lots of people freaking out at IKEA's new policy of charging for plastic bags.

"What do you mean, 5c for a plastic bag?"
"That bag isn't worth 5c!"
"That's outrageous!"
"At that price I don't need a bag!"(erm hello, that's the point lady!)

I told the clerk I thought it was an excellent idea, however, she told me people had been stealing the bags and complaining and giving her a hard time.

So come on Edmonton! Bring your own bags to IKEA and quit complaining to the check-out staff!! It's not about IKEA cheaping out and charging for the bags, it's about waste reduction.

Thank you IKEA, I think your new bag policy rocks.
