Single-Use Plastic Reduction

City Council is considering whether to pass an ordinance (local law) to reduce litter in our community by restricting plastic bags and/or Expanded Polystyrene [Styrofoam™] containers, items that are typically used once and then thrown away ("single-use"). Examples of products under consideration are plastic bags provided by stores at check-out and disposable foodware containers (Styrofoam™ cups or boxes) provided by restaurants or hot bars for carry-out orders.

Question title

If the city were to further restrict single-use plastic, what additional products would you like to see included?

Click and drag each option to move the items, in your priority order, into the top/next priority box. When complete, click the green "Confirm Priorities" box.
