#NewtownPA Businesses: Are You Ready to Finally Give Up Single Use Plastics? | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

The Newtown Environmental Council (EAC) plans to develop an ordinance regulating/banning single-use plastic by businesses.


“Ready to finally give up single use plastics?,” asked Ms. Snyder on her Facebook page. “Those who know me realize I’ve been working on this since 2019 for Newtown Township but then Covid happened and you know the story…couldn’t put any hardship on our businesses then. I’m happy to say that we start open hearings for our businesses to learn and ask questions about the plastics ordinance that’s coming our way with experts from Penn Environment and our own Newtown Township Environmental Advisory Council. All businesses will be invited.”


The plan is to have several special public meetings with Newtown Township business owners and the public to review a draft single-use plastic ban ordinance.
