The same bill would make plastic straws available only on request
DE State Senator Paradee has introduced a bill that would ban expanded polystyrene foam, also known as Styrofoam, in food-ware containers and in some other packaging. The proposed law goes further by banning plastic coffee stirrers, cocktail picks, and sandwich picks, and it would make plastic straws available only by request.
Plastic straws and pieces of plastic foam are consistently found on Delaware’s Beaches through chapter beach cleanups. That information can be accessed through Surfrider Foundation’s Beach Cleanup Database here.
