Portsmouth’s city council voted Monday night to begin considering a local ban on some single-use plastic products. It targets Styrofoam and it also affects city-sponsored events in terms of restricting single-use plastics like straws and plastic bags.
Portsmouth City Councilor Josh Denton has been trying for years to pass some version of this ban. Earlier this year, he proposed barring businesses in the city from distributing most single-use plastic straws and shopping bags.
