9/1/12 UPDATE: SB 568 fails to pass, more info on the Coastal Blog. The California State Senate passed SB 568 in 2011 and it needs to be voted on by the State Assembly by August 31st, 2012. This bill would phase out expanded polystyrene (EPS) food and drink containers at restaurants statewide by 2015. Please tell your State Assemblymember to support this bill to clean up our beaches and support sustainable foodware products by phasing out the use of foam containers by restaurants and other food vendors.
