Good morning, from Surfrider. We are pleased to announce that on Weds. December 17th, the Scotts Valley City Council unanimously voted to establish a polystyrene food take-out container ban in the city.
This makes the fourth jurisdiction in Santa Cruz County which has enacted a similar ordinance!
For the record, you should also know that your organization was represented in public comment during this process as a member of the "WIPE OUT PLASTIC TAKEOUT!" Coalition that we cooperatively-established during 2007 to advocate for such bans around the Monterey Bay area.
Thanks to all of you for your cooperation and support! We believe the WOPT coalition has been an effective tool to move this process along.
