New York City Votes to “Skip the Stuff” In Take-Out Orders

“Billions of pounds of plastic cover 40% of our ocean surfaces and we contribute to that,” said Council Member Erik Bottcher. “That’s why I’m so proud to be a prime cosponsor of the Skip the Stuff Legislation. Thanks to Chair Velázquez for sponsoring this bill and holding this important hearing. I’m also grateful to the amazing advocates and organizations like Reusable NYC who work on this issue every single day.”
