New Jersey Shore Town Bans Plastic Straws + Bags!

posted by Nicole - 

I think this is amazing, and much much needed.  We have to take care of environment.  We have to make sure our wildlife is safe and healthy.  This is a great start!

6abc has the story:

A Jersey shore town has voted unanimously to ban plastic bags and straws from Monmouth Beach.Officials voted Tuesday to ban single-use plastic bags, straws and food containers, as well as take-out Styrofoam boxes.The ordinance, which was introduced last month and takes effect June 1, includes fines of up to $2,400 - though Mayor Sue Howard says warnings will be issued for initial violations.  I hope Wildwood, Ocean City, Cape May, etc do it next!
