Would you look at that – Seattle is about to become the first city to have an ordinance banning food containers that are not either compostable or recyclable. How exciting! It’s been a year and a half since restaurants in Seattle were banned from sending your take-out food home in a Styrofoam clam-shell container, but now this is extended to include all sorts of food establishments and single-use food containers. I, for one, am happy to be part of this trend. Seattleites sent some 80,000 TONS of food and yard waste to composting facilities last year, keeping it out of landfills (and the ocean). Hooray!!!
