Eco-Friendly Business Toolkit: Minimizing Plastics

The City of St. Petersburg has developed a resource to assist businesses impacted by the recently approved ordinance regulating the use of single-use plastics. This tool is the first of a series of resources - collectively referred to as City of St. Petersburg's Business Toolkits - available to businesses.

 The digital toolkit includes key statistics, dates and recommended next steps for businesses looking to reduce single-use plastics. To view this volume of the Business Toolkit, visit

 In 2018, St. Petersburg's City Council approved ordinances limiting single-use plastic straws and expanded polystyrene (EPS or "Styrofoam") in food service establishments. Community volunteers and City outreach teams have deployed to educate and interface with local businesses during the transitionary period before the ordinances take effect on Jan. 1, 2020. During 2019, businesses are encouraged to only provide plastic straws upon request and explore alternatives to plastic straws and Styrofoam.
