Pacific Grove Polystyrene Ban

Victory | May 03 2008

Plastic Pollution

The City of Pacific Grove has passed an ordinance prohibiting the use of polystyrene food service wares. The ordinance acts to reduce local non-biodegradable and non-recyclable waste at the source, preventing its eventual disposal on local beaches and in the ocean. The Chapter partnered with Sustainable Pacific Grove and Monterey Green Action to accomplish their goal.
