A quote from The New York State Restaurant Association was included in New York City Mayor De Blasio's press release announcing the ban on single-us styrofoam products:

 

“The New York State Restaurant Association appreciates the efforts of the NYC Department of Sanitation and the Mayor's Office to enact legislation that moves our industry toward sustainability while recognizing the needs of small businesses via a long transition period and a commitment to educate businesses on alternatives before fining them", said Chris Hickey, Regional Director NYC of the New York State Restaurant Association. “We look forward to working with the City to educate restaurants on how to comply with the law and helping them find alternative products that are better for the environment and cost effective.”
