Former EPA official lauds plastic bag ban

New Yorkers have only about six months left to get single use plastic bags at the supermarket before a ban goes into effect March 1 and former EPA Administrator Judith Enck says that’s good thing. Enck now runs the Beyond Plastics center at Bennington College, VT and she spoke during a recent conference there. She told WBFO Albany Correspondent Karen DeWitt that more needs to be done.
