Santa Fe Bag Ban Endorsed by Local Media Outlet

Santa Fe, NM, May 17, 2013 (PBBR) -  A local media outlet has endorsed a proposed ordinance banning plastic bags and paper bags - before the proposal has even reached City Council. The Santa Fe New Mexican published an editorial yesterday stating, "Our View: Plastic bag ban good for city".

Santa Fe's Grocery Bag Task Force spent a year studying the issue of disposable, single-use bags in the City of Santa Fe. In the process, an ordinance was drafted that will ban both paper and plastic bags. The Task Force presented their findings and the ordinance to Santa Fe's City Business and Quality of Life Committee on May 14, 2013. The Committee approved the ordinance, which now goes to the City Council for consideration.
