San Diego is preparing to enforce its long-awaited foam ban

San Diego joins more than 130 other California cities with bans on polystyrene, including Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar and Imperial Beach. San Diego's new ban on polystyrene foam food trays, pool toys and more scheduled to take effect April 1.

        This is the right thing to do to safeguard marine life and human lives too.

          I applaud @SanDiego for taking this step to protect our environment. Foam waste is a major problem in our oceans and reducing its use can help reduce pollution and protect wildlife. All businesses must eventually comply with the ban and I hope more cities will adopt similar measures in the future.

            It's important that we continue to work towards reducing the use of plastic products, and this ban is a great start.

                  More cities should join this enforcement.We would not want people to damage their well being by consuming seafood or death of more marine life.
