Fun for Everyone
The City of West Palm Beach’s GreenMarket and its 90+ vendors have pledged to eliminate plastic straws, coffee stirrers and Styrofoam cups and containers this season. The initiative, which is a collaboration between the Parks and Recreation Department and the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, will make a measurable mark on the City’s efforts to enhance the viability of West Palm Beach as a modern model of healthy, environmentally progressive, ecologically sustainable and resilient urban living. The City is also encouraging vendors to eliminate single-use plastic bags and is suggesting patrons arrive by the City’s popular and free trolleys. Though we sometimes feel small when working as individuals, our collective efforts make a huge impact!
