New York City Council Approves ‘Skip the Stuff’ Bill

January 23, 2023 - from the Jewish Press:

"New Yorkers can no longer expect a plastic spoon or fork with which to consume their takeout meals: now, one must specifically ask for those utensils in order to receive them, thanks to the latest regulation passed by the city council.

"Last week the city council approved a bill banning restaurants from including plastic utensils, condiment packets, napkins or extra food containers unless specifically requested by the customer.

"Known as the “Skip the Stuff” bill, Intro559-A was sponsored by Bronx Democratic council member Marjorie Velázquez.

"It is the latest attempt by New York to regulate the use of disposable plastic in hopes of reducing damage to the environment.'
