SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — Seminole County could soon have a ban on plastic.

County Commissioner Lee Constantine has asked county officials to do preliminary research on a potential ban that would prohibit vendors from using plastic cups, straws, and other items at county parks and facilities.

Several Florida cities, including Orlando, have passed similar bans to reduce plastic going into landfills and oceans.

“This is not going to change the world per say, but what this does is send a valuable message to our constituents and private businesses that hey, this is easy to do,” Constantine said.
