After 11.5K+ emails to LA County Supervisors and over 250+ written public comments supporting “The Big One,” we are thrilled to announce that LA County finally passed the ordinance we’ve all been waiting for on April 19th, 2022. In a nutshell, “The Big One” will:
Require ALL single-use foodware items in the County to be actually compostable or recyclable
Ban all EPS (AKA styrofoam) products in the County
Require reusable foodware at full-service, dine-in eateries
This highly-anticipated ordinance will go into effect in Spring of 2023.
One more HUGE thank you to all of you who helped get this very important piece of legislation across the finish line! We couldn’t do this work without you.
