California Styrofoam Ban

The California Senate has passed a bill to ban the use of Styrofoam in California restaurants.

The California state Senate recently passed a bill halting the use of Styrofoam for food distribution, forcing restaurants and food vendors to use more sustainable products instead. “I introduced this bill not just to solve an environmental problem that plagues our state but also because it’s a job booster for California,” says Sen. Alan Lowenthal, the sponsor of the bill. About 50 municipalities throughout the state already ban the substance. If the bill passes the state Assembly, California will be the first state in the country to implement such legislation. Styrofoam, or expanded polystyrene foam, is a slowly composting, lightweight plastic that commonly pollutes waterways and beaches.
