It's government greed dressing it up in a green banner. If they really cared about it they would provide bags for life. Because it's only 5p it seems like nothing but add it up. How would you react to a 5p increase in fuel tax.

Technically the money goes to the supermarket.
It's also taxable. 5p's add up
"The measure is primarily an environmental one but the Treasury is estimated to gain a predicted income of £19m a year from the VAT charge. "

The rest of the money goes back to the retailer but many are expected to donate the money to charity. If 100% went to charity then it wouldn't be so bad.
