Get EPS Foam Food Packaging Out of Maine!

Loss |

After the successful campaign our Chapter helped win in the summer of 2014, where the City of Portland banned EPS foam food packaging, the 127th Maine State Legislature considered a bill that would ban EPS foam food packaging in the state! 

The Chapter rallied to support this important bill but had a tough battle to fight, considering the layout of the administration.  Unfortunately, the bill didn't make it.
