City Council Has Polystyrene Ban on Agenda

13906624_1056518781098469_1817179882743007630_n-1At the Culver City Council meeting on Monday, August 8th, Agenda Item A-1 will be considering a proposal to ban single-use polystyrene food containers and related items.

With successful bans already in place in cities such as San Francisco, Santa Monica and Berkeley, and counties like Santa Cruz and San Mateo, it’s a movement that is clearly finding favor with many entities throughout the state.

Single use plastic containers still lead the list for waste that can harm the environment, and like the city’s plastic bag ban, it’s a move that can create long term benefits for the creek, the beach, and all the marine life affected.

The meeting begins at 7 pm at City Hall, and speaker cards are available to address the council.
