Have you thought about trying to make some sort of reflector for your tubes. This would angle the light downwards and reduce the glare from the lights. There are reflectors available for tube lighting but I think most are 2,4,6,8 tube fittings. A reflector would maximise the light by concentrating it onto your plants as I think the cardboard and plastic bags are simply absorbing and wasting light. If your fairly handy with the tools you could build one from polished alu sheet or a cheaper option use something like thin fibreboard and line the inside with Mylar.
