Maui County did it. Hawaii island is going to do it.
Many people want to know -- when will a ban on styrofoam containers go statewide?
A bill to ban styrofoam containers for take-out food -- STATEWIDE -- cleared a hurdle at the Capitol and is on its way forward.
Introduced by Senator Mike Gabbard, the bill was approved for further action with no amendments.
Gabbard first introduced this sort of bill in 2013, but given Maui's ban that took effect at the end of December, and the coming ban on Hawaii island, Gabbard is encouraged.
