Yes! Ban the dumb things. This is my choice. Now you go out to eat and you have no choice but to take what they give you. I have been a Republican all my life, but I'm pretty fed up with their stupidity and irresponsible behavior. I'm going to register with the Green Party. I don't want to be associated with them ever again.

Many restaurants already do this, but are the alternatives better? Do they take more to produce? Hope it works!

As a Californian I support this new law and hope that it will show others that it works!

Hey Chinese take out restaurants seem to be competing just fine.

There are nearly always better alternatives to polystyrene. There are suitable containers made from paper or degradable plastics that can have the same insulative and supportive qualities. However, currently all alternatives available cost more than polystyrene. I think California missed the boat on this one. They should have instituted a tax that increased over those five years. That would have made the alternatives more cost-effective and would have given industry incentive to develop more appropriate materials.

I think that this is a great idea. Recycling them would be even better.
