Reduce Single-Use Plastics in Summit

I support a local ordinance mandating the reduction or elimination of single-use plastics by Summit businesses in an effort to reduce plastic pollution and promote environmentally friendly alternatives.

Why is this important?

With the recent rupture in the recycling industry, and the continuing pollution caused by improperly handled plastics, Summit residents are adamant about reducing our reliance on single-use plastics in favor of more durable, and less wasteful, alternatives. Waste not, want not.
