San Francisco has always been a leader for action in reducing single-use plastic pollution. Now, the Surfrider Chapter is poised to help make the city and its coastlines even cleaner through inspiring legisaltion to spur a citywide switch to reusable foodware.
What is in the Proposed Ordinance?
• Requires reusable food service ware for all on-site dining (just like our Ocean Friendly Restuarants!)
• Requires all food vendors including but not limited to restaurants & food delivery services to charge:
– 25 cents per take-out cup & 25 cents per take-out food container
• Fees may be kept by the vendor to use for more sustainable options
