Officials in San Mateo County are taking the first steps towards creating a polystyrene-free county by considering a Styrofoam ban in county facilities. At least one potentially-affected food service owner told Tamara Barak Aparton of the San Francisco Examiner that she would welcome the ban:
"Roina Morales, who manages the VRS CafÃ© inside the San Mateo County courthouse, said she would welcome the ban. The cafe uses Styrofoam only to serve its soup, she said. 'It wouldnâ€™t be difficult to implement and itâ€™s better for the environment,' she said."
Santa Cruz will become the first county to go totally-polystyrene free once the two remaining cities without bans enact them.
