Which Cities Have Banned Plastic Foam?

Washington, DC has joined the ranks of cities that have banned plastic foam products (commonly called Styrofoam). On July 14, 2014, DC lawmakers passed the second and final round of a bill called “Sustainable DC Omnibus Act of 2014,” which includes a ban on the product in restaurants and businesses.

Currently, all bans have appeared on a citywide or countywide level. Some of the cities and counties listed on the map below have complete bans on Styrofoam and other polystyrene foam, which includes all places of business and public facilities. Others have enacted partial bans, regarding foam use in public facilities.
