Proposed legislation to ban polystyrene foam products was postponed in 2013, after several Baltimore City Council members withdrew support.
The Baltimore Sun reports that City Councilman John Bullock reintroduced the Styrofoam ban at Monday’s council meeting. The initiative is an effort to reduce the number of Styrofoam cups found in Baltimore’s waterways.
“It’s something that we should be looking at here in Baltimore,” he said. “Those who opposed the bill, I understand their point of view. I think it’s important to look at alternatives that are more environmentally friendly. We need to be better environmental stewards.”
