Plastic Bag Ban Request
There is a push to ban plastic shopping bags in Henderson County.
Dan West, a writer and former chairman of the County Environmental Advisory Board, is behind the ban he says the non-biodegradable bags are bad for the environment and keeping gas prices up.
West also says tourism increases 37% in three Outer Banks counties that adopted the ban.
Dan West will make his presentation Wednesday morning at the county commission meeting at 9 a.m.
