It has not been a short journey- it started years ago with a ban on foam coolers on all of Miami’s beaches. Earlier this year the ordinance grew to cover a foam ban on all city property. Then, on September 2nd, the Miami Beach City Commission voted to expand the foam ban to the entire City of Miami Beach. The ban includes coolers and foam foodware. Miami Beach will begin enforcement with public education, then transition to a warning system, and finally to issuing fines for violations by November of 2016. More.
