A ban on Styrofoam containers in Minneapolis restaurants went into effect on Earth Day, Wednesday.
The ordinance requires all food and drinks prepared for dine-in or take-out to be placed in packaging that can re-used, recycled, or composted.
Those white Styrofoam take out containers will soon be banned in Minneapolis. The city council has adopted a measure to amend the city code that will outlaw Styrofoam containers starting on Earth Day, April 22, 2015.
A new proposal to ban Styrofoam containers in restaurants has some owners worried about the extra cost that will have to be passed along to the customer.
If you shop enough, you’ll pick up on changes at the grocery store, and some of you may have noticed a change in the way you buy eggs. More and more eggs are being sold in Styrofoam cartons.
