Eight vendors showed up at the Virgin Islands Waste Management Authority town hall meeting at the St. Croix Curriculum Center to learn what they had to do to comply with ban on plastic bags.

Kelvin Vidal, VIWMA general counsel, gave a presentation and answered questions.

Amanda Bradshaw, representing Frederiksted’s Stop and Shop, wondered whether biodegradable bags would be allowed. She quickly got her answer: “No.”

“We want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem,” said Shawn Hamed, representing the Plaza West grocery store.

Good progressive moves by the Virgin Islands to protect their precious lands.
