Martin County Passes Resolution Regarding Plastic Straws

Martin County Commissioners have voted to approve a resolution to encourage businesses in the county to reduce or eliminate single-use plastic straws and other items that are not environmentally friendly, such as styrofoam.

The county stopped short of a straw ban as some municipalities around the state have done, including West Palm Beach.

An education campaign for students and businesses, teaching about the harm plastics cause to turtles and other wildlife is part of Martin's resolution.
