Marc Basnight has secured approval for a ban on plastic bags for the three counties on the coast in his district - Dare, Currituck and Hyde.
This is a good initial step in stopping the huge buildup of plastic waste that is literally killing our oceans. See for yourself.
Thanks Senator Basnight. I am sure that my summer vacation to the outer banks will be much more pleasant knowing there will be less bags going into the ocean from NC coastal areas. I look forward to dining at the Lone Cedar and hope to see you this July 4th week. (if you are up to it, maybe an interview on this bill?)
