Maryland May Become First State To Ban Foam Food And Drink Containers

Maryland may become the first state to ban foam food and drink containers.  The bill that would ban restaurants and store owners from using polystyrene packaging has been gaining steam in the state legislature… with the measure passing 34-13 in the state Senate last week and 97-38 in the House of Delegates. Under the proposed bill… food and drink containers made from foam products would be prohibited from use, though any food or drink packaged outside the state and shipped in would be exempt. The legislature would still need to be signed into law by the governor before taking effect.
