The ban on polystyrene foam proposed by the Bloomberg Administration will cost New York City businesses, tax payers and visitors nearly $100 million per year. In a city where everyone eats out, foodservice product costs will nearly double. Schools will suffer an $8 million increase in costs. Plus, the ban will jeopardize more than 1,200 manufacturing jobs in New York state. And even if foam is banned, cups and food containers will continue to fill our landfills.
Send an email to your council member and urge them to vote No on banning foam foodservice containers in New York City.
