Mayor Gray Submits Environmental Legislation

November 7, 2013

A ban on food and beverage containers made of plastic foam is among the provisions contained in a package of environmental legislation that Mayor Vincent C. Gray has submitted to the D.C. Council. If the proposal is approved, the District would join Seattle, San Francisco, Portland, Ore., and dozens of other mostly West Coast cities that have banned foam containers on ecological grounds.
