Seattle: Styrofoam Ban Leads to Packaging Changes

Seattle's ban on #6 polystyrene trays (commonly known as Styrofoam) at restaurants and grocery stores went into effect on July 1.

Seattle is officially the first market area in North America to require single-use food service packaging be either compostable or recyclable. Similar regulations for single-use food service packaging are in a testing phase in San Francisco and already planned in Toronto. As a result packaging producers packaging companies, packaging suppliers, and the packaging industry come up with an innovative and eco-friendly packaging solution.
