    It's really amazing what that 10 cent price tag does to people psychologically. Apparently, when offered a 10 cent discount for bringing your own bag, most people don't care about the extra money, but when charged an extra 10 cents people start taking it seriously. I think there's a truth to it that when something costs more people value it more. And I ultimately think these bags are worth even more than 10 cents (in Germany they charge almost a dollar), but this is a really good start to change the thinking.
