Rise Above Plastics

Melbourne Beach Voluntary Bag Ban

Work with Melbourne Beach City Council to craft and implement a voluntary bag ban within city limits.


Even though the Florida Legislature prohibits local governments from taxing, banning or limiting plastic bags, the citizens and City Council of Melbourne Beach are working together to create a voluntary bag ban for their community.  The bag ban is modeled after the City of St. Augustine Beach, which passed a voluntary bag ban in early 2014.
