Help St. Pete Businesses Kick Plastic!

  • Hollander Hotel Downtown St Petersburg 421 4th Avenue North St. Petersburg, FL, 33701 United States (map)

St. Pete Businesses are reducing single-use plastics, and you can help!

After more than a year of discussions between environmentalists, scientists, city staff, residents, businesses, and elected officials, St. Pete City Council approved an ordinance banning single-use plastic straws city-wide and expanded polystyrene (EPS or Styrofoam) on public property (city parks and sidewalks mostly).

During 2019 we are making sure every business is educated on these regulations and have time to explore other options. Join us for a short training session, and then we'll hit the streets together to deliver information and resources to local businesses.

For more information, and any day-of questions, message Thomas Paterek (preferred), or call him on 727-266-6188.
