As an island community, Maui is especially aware of the impacts of single-use plastics. Effective January 2022, plastic disposable foodware is banned for use, sale, or provision in the county. Businesses will provide non-plastic products that are safer for the environment. Through its work with Circulars and ICLEI USA, the county will explore additional circular strategies.
