THE GROUP, KNOWN AS TALENT ZERO WASTE, BEGAN A CAMPAIGN OVER THE WEEKEND IN SUPPORT OF A NEW CITY ORDINANCE THAT BANS NEARLY ALL, SINGLE-USE, PLASTIC ITEMS AT RESTAURANTS. THE GROUP HELD A PARTY AT THE GROTTO PIZZA PARLOR IN THE CITY, TO SHOWCASE DIFFERENT TYPES OF CONTAINERS AND UTENSILS THAT PEOPLE CAN BRING FROM HOME. THE HOPE IS TO URGE PEOPLE TO BRING THEIR OWN CONTAINERS, THEREBY CUTTING COSTS FOR RESTAURANTS AND HELPING THE ENVIRONMENT.
