Kudos to Kaua‘i lawmakers for plastics ban

Thanks be to Kaua‘i legislators and the Kaua‘i mayor for their actions to ban polystyrene foam food containers and disposable plastics. These actions will extend the life of our current landfill. Perhaps more importantly, they contribute to a global project to save the humpback whales by discontinuing dumping eight million tons of plastic into our oceans each year. Whales swallow too much plastic, it blocks their digestion, and then they die.
