Congrats to Hawaii County Council on Passing a Styrofoam Reduction Bill

As with plastic bags, counties are leading the way in environmental actions that have been blocked by lobbyists at the state level.
Kudos to Councilmember Eileen Ohara for shepherding this through, with a veto-proof margin of 7-2.

Mahalo to Councilmembers Jen Ruggles, Val Poindexter, Karen Eoff, and Maile David for supporting this all along, and to CMs Dru Kanuha and Tim Richards for seeing the light after much testimony and bill-tweaking, and joining our fight to protect our environment.
