Voluntary Eco tax


All of us taxpayers are saving money as most of us are not travelling, not buying petrol, not polluting, not using public transport etc. My basic idea would be to set up a Government run Eco Tax Foundation, and invite people to give a little bit each month of the money that they would have spent on travel, so that it could be used for things like giving money to farmers to plant more woodland, councils to apply for funding for cycle paths, scientists who are inventing less pollutive forms of transport, builders who want to spent a bit more and make their homes eco -friendly. In fact, like an eco-tax, but voluntary. A charity, but government run. Maybe a friendly tax that you can opt into or out of. This is just a sketch of an idea, but maybe someone with a better brain than me could develop it.
