New York Mayor Proposes Building Out Electric Car Charging Network, Also Targets Styrofoam
NEW YORK — Mayor Michael Bloomberg is expected to use part of his last State of the City address to push initiatives that would increase the number of parking spaces for electric cars, begin recycling more plastics and food waste and ban Styrofoam food packaging.
Bloomberg, who has taken on smoking, big sugary drinks and high salt content in food, said he was setting his sights on Styrofoam.
"One product that is virtually impossible to recycle and never bio-degrades is Styrofoam ... something that we know is environmentally destructive and that may be hazardous to our health, that is costing taxpayers money and that we can easily do without, and is something that should go the way of lead paint," he said.
