Discussing Reducing Plastics Usage Image
In time for the Nov. 7 start date of the Town of Westport’s Single Use Plastic ordinance, Westport’s Conservation Director Alicia Mozian led a presentation and discussion tonight at Town Hall for an invited list of 235 local food service small businesses. The event attracted a representation of fewer than 10 people. According to Mozian, the ordinance does not cover plastic utensils nor lids but does prohibit the use of single use plastic plates, bowls and cups. She said Westport is the first and only town in the state to establish an ordinance aimed at cutting down on the environmental unfriendly plastic usage in food service businesses.
