Elen Snyder Comments on Single-Use Plastics & Climate Change

At the August 25, 2021, Newtown Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting, Ms. Elen Snyder - member of the Newtown Township Environmental Advisory Council (EAC) and a 2021 candidate for Newtown Supervisor - commented on the impact of single-use plastics on the environment. Ms. Snyder urged Newtown to follow other townships - such as the Borough of Narberth, PA - in passing regulations that encourage or require businesses to reduce the usage of plastic materials, eliminate the use of Styrofoam, promote the use of reusable bags, and replace plastics with sustainable materials.

Ms. Snyder also spoke about the EAC's recommendation to implement meadows in open spaces such as retention basins in order to counteract the impact of climate change on the pollution of our streams and lakes.
