Del Mar approves intern project to assess plastic bag use in city

By Claire Harlin

After discussing in detail and supporting last month a non-agendized recommendation to hire a summer intern to assess Del Mar businesses’ plastic bag usage, the Del Mar City Council on March 18 officially approved the initiative.

At no cost to the city, the intern will gather data that the city can analyze to see if a plastic bag ban such as that implemented by Solana Beach last year would be beneficial. The measure was brought forth by the city’s Sustainability Advisory Board (SAB) and then brought to the council’s attention by Councilman Don Mosier. Del Mar officials have expressed disinterest in a ban, citing possible detriment to local businesses.
