Lafayette’s Environmental Task Force is currently working with city staff on a single-use disposables ordinance which could include plastic straws. If you’d like to voice your opinion in what you’d like to see in such an ordinance, please contact Nancy Hu, Vice Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. She is also administrator for the Buy Nothing Lafayette, CA group, which strengthens communities by sharing resources.
