    eating chicken and rice out of a styrofoam box and throwing it on the side of the road is as much a national pastime as baseball

    Maybe the government will explain why, but don't hold your breath on that.

    I started a thread on David Collado this morning.

    He announced on his Facebook page that the city of Santo Domingo has adapted the same resolution and signed it into law.

    Since he's not going to be around much longer, his replacement should have a lot of fun with that one.

    Not the same resolution, this covers only substitution of plastic straws, resolución 47-2019

    Mayor of the National District takes a step in favor of the environment and sustainability and approves resolution 47-2019 to reduce the use of plastic materials, starting with plastic straws.

    McDonalds have had a bumpy road doing this in Europe, but they are beginning to figure out how to do it without angry customers

    Right you are. I misread his Facebook page this morning.

    I stand corrected.

    I am a surfer from Boca Chica and we hate Mondays. That's because weekend Styrofoam garbage gets washed along the break towards the sea. But if the plastic gets banned the beach restaurants will spread food poisoning. They don't have adequate dish-washing facilities.
