Soon there won't be a question of paper or plastic on the Outer Banks.
The Daily Advance of Elizabeth City reports a ban on plastic bags at grocery stores and other businesses will resume Friday.
The ban had been suspended after a tornado destroyed a Food Lion distribution center in Dunn that was a supplier for the chain's paper bags.
The ban was enacted in 2009 for businesses in Currituck, Hyde and Dare counties. Its goal was to rid the scenic area of trash and help preserve marine animals in danger of choking on the bags.
