Single-Use Plastics and Polystyrene are Banned at George Mason University

Governor Northam signed Executive Order 77 in March 2021 effectively banning single-use plastics and polystyrene from state agencies, including Mason. Mason purchasers and vendors, please review guidance (below) about acceptable items you can purchase as alternatives after July 21, 2021.   

As an overall waste reduction strategy, let’s reframe our thinking to “Buy Less, Buy Better.” If you purchase giveaways, support sustainability by purchasing durable, climate-neutral reusables, or contact the task force.
