Description

I love the food trucks and all the changes that have been made to this area but could we restrict the food vendors to providing (at a minimum) Paper plates, paper containers, Paper Cups, Paper STRAWS??? The fact that there's sea gulls all over, even if the trash is thrown away the bird may pull it right back out. If you look in the rocks on the shore all you see are Styrofoam plates and food containers. I can't imagine how much of it gets blown directly into the water as well. I understand it's extra cost for the vendors but they can afford to raise prices and be a much "Greener" food vendor area.
I'd also like a ban on glass bottles too (possibly) since there's broken glass all over.
