New Hanover Beach Towns Encourage Plastic Bag Ban

Beach towns are urging New Hanover County to consider a ban on environmentally hazardous plastic shopping bags.

The StarNews of Wilmington reported that the Wrightsville Beach Board of Aldermen and the Carolina Beach Town Council recently approved resolutions promising support for county efforts to do away with plastic bags.

Officials hope their resolutions will encourage the county to either ban the bags or have shoppers pay a small fee for them.

County officials said they don't plan to ban the bags in the near future. One commissioner says the county has never discussed the issue.
