Dana Point Foam Foodware Ban

Victory | February 21 2012

Plastic Pollution

The City of Dana Point passed ordinance on Feb. 21, 2012 banning the use of expanded polystyrene food service ware at local food vendors, city facilities and city sponsored events. While considering an ordinance to ban plastic bags in 2011, City Council decided to take action on foam foodware - another top item found at beach cleanups. The South Orange County Chapter sprung into action to mobilize activists, generate support and speak in favor at city council hearings.
