Repeal of foam packaging ban sought

Shaw’s Supermarkets is asking the town of Freeport, ME, to change its 14-year-old ban on plastic foam packaging in retail stores. Shaw’s is opening a supermarket in an area covered by the ban and said the ban hampers the chain’s ability to provide safe meat.

Shaw’s has been asked to provide information about what alternatives to foam packaging it has considered and their impact on the company.

The ban was imposed in 1989 after local school children raised concerns about the environmental impact of foam packaging on the environment. Their initial target was McDonald’s. Shaw’s is the first company to challenge the ban.
