Kotek Signs Plastics Bills

(Salem, OR) -- Several Styrofoam products are being banned in Oregon. Governor Tina Kotek has signed two bills. One will phase out Styrofoam food containers, packing peanuts and coolers. It also prohibits PFAS chemicals in food packaging, because they're considered forever chemicals. The other bill instructs the Oregon Health Authority to write rules for restaurants, so customers can use their own containers to take home leftovers.
