Takoma Park passes Young Activist Act of 2014 banning polystyrene!
Thank you Takoma Park City Council for restricting use of polystyrene for serving food!
The new law builds on the 2010 resolution passed by the Council that restricted City funds from being spent to purchase polystyrene or food served on it.
The new Young Activist Act of 2014 (Ordinance 2014-62) prevents foodservice facilities in the City from using polystyrene packaging or foodservice when providing foods for on-site or take-away consumption. It also prevents the City of Takoma Park from purchasing these materials nor any City-sponsored event from using them.
