What is Plastic Free MB


#PlasticFreeMB is aimed at minimizing the use of plastic in the city by highlighting businesses that have taken action to reduce plastics from their establishment and helping organizations learn and implement best practices in the area of environmental stewardship. The program has been designed with a cumulative 3-level system in which participating businesses can choose the most suitable level to their current plastic reduction practices. The more single-use plastic items businesses move away from, the higher the level they can obtain.

We invite you to become a part of this program by pledging to reduce single-use plastics within your business. Whether you're a restaurant, retail store, music venue or caterer; we can all do our part in protecting the environment we love. After all, Miami Beach could not be a tropical paradise without its natural beauty!

By joining #PlasticFreeMB and once your business reaches one of the levels below, the City of Miami Beach will provide tailored marketing collateral and recognize your business efforts through all of its communication vehicles.

If you're interested in learning more about which products to use in your business, visit the Plastic Substitutes page.
