Pass Bold San Francisco Foodware Reuse Ordinance!

The San Francisco Chapter is working to take bold steps to incentivize the use of reusable beverage cups and food service ware.

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
