Are Plastic Straws Banned in Maryland?
A statewide Plastic Straw Ban is currently not implemented in the state of Maryland but several counties have taken action including:
- New Prince George’s County - CB-52-2019 effective July 1, 2020
- Montgomery County - Council Bill 32-20 effective May 1, 2021
- Takoma Park County - Ordinance 2019-5 effective January 1, 2020
Several states have already banned plastic straws; it might be just a matter of time before a statewide ban also gets implemented in Maryland. Plastic straw usage has already taken its toll on our environment. We all can do our part to reduce plastic waste and protect the environment by switching from plastic straws to an organic alternative like imPASTA.
What Makes Impasta a Great Alternative to Plastic Straws?
Definitely better than any other plastic straw alternatives out there!
