Forbidden Planet (Dry-Hopped Kolsch), Stroppy (New Zealand Pale Ale), and Jam (Strawberry-Rhubarb Berliner Weisse).

DC Foam Container Ban

The District of Columbia’s foam container ban takes effect on January 1, 2016. The law prohibits businesses and organizations that serve prepared food and beverages from using containers and other food service products made of expanded polystyrene, commonly known as Styrofoam™. The ban on foam containers will reduce the amount of material entering landfills and will improve the health of the District’s rivers and streams.

Certain foam products are exempt from the ban, including products packaged outside the District, products used to package raw meat or seafood, and products purchased in bulk for home use. Businesses that distribute banned foam products after January 1, 2016 may be fined.

If you’re a business that’s already foam free, contact DDOE to receive a Foam Free DC window cling! To request a window cling or get more information about the ban, visit or call (202) 645-6988.
