Another Arctic community dumps plastic bags

Siku News – The community of Nain has become one of the first places in Newfoundland and Labrador to ban plastic shopping bags. The local Inuit community government voted in favour of a ban on non-recyclable plastic bags earlier this week. The ban is expected to go into effect on Nov. 30. “I think it’s a great step for our community,” Sarah Erickson, head of the Inuit Community Government in Nain, told CBC News on Friday. “A lot of people are already using their own bags, so this just seem the natural way to go.”
