Iowa City to sack plastic grocery bags

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The Iowa City Council plans to discuss a possible ban on plastic grocery bags.

Council member Connie Champion suggested earlier this month that the council address the issue.

Mayor Regenia Bailey says a ban on plastic bags is trend that's catching on nationwide.

San Francisco banned plastic bags last year.

Bailey said plastic bags create an environmental hazard.
