Miami Beach going more green

MIAMI (WFLX) - City commissioners have tentatively approved a measure that would ban styrofoam cups and boxes from Miami Beach parks and sidewalk cafes. That means some restaurants would have to change how they serve customers.

Supporters say styrofoam isn't recyclable or biodegradable. Styrofoam is already banned on the beaches. Commissioners will vote on the ordinance in July before it becomes law.
