BLACKFOOT, Idaho (AP) - A Snake River High School student plans to ask the Blackfoot City Council to ban plastic and paper shopping bags.

The Blackfoot Morning News (https://is.gd/HogSjG ) reports that 16-year-old Hayley Lemon is on track to graduate early and tackling this environmental issue is her senior project.

Lemon says too much unnecessary waste goes into the landfill and she’d like Blackfoot to be a leader in environmental responsibility.

Her presentation is scheduled for Tuesday’s council meeting at Blackfoot City Hall.

Lemon says it’s natural for her to be interested in environmental issues. She’s from what she describes as an “extremely outdoorsy family” with a strong appreciation for nature.
