State Representative Deborah Hudson introduced a bill on June 19th to prohibit the free distribution of single-use bags by grocery stores and other large retailers.
The Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club and the Delaware Audubon Society have submitted joint comments on the Delaware City Refinery's NPDES Permit.
The familiar look of plastic bags tangled in trees or in bushes, floating in our bays and other waterways, washing up on beaches, or caught in storm drains has become a serious problem of global and local concern.
