Due to the finding that disposable plastic is harmful to our environment and contributes to the potential death of marine and avian life Mayor Derek Kawakami has declared that the County shall prohibit the purchase, use, or distribution of disposable plastics with County funds, at County permitted events, by County employees, or by County Facility Users. This shall be done in order to protect public health, reduce litter, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Therefore the County will invest in environmentally preferred alternatives to disposable plastics.
