Polystyrene No Longer To Go in Calabasas

The name of the City of Calabasas is either derived from the Chumash Indian for "where the wild geese fly" or from the Spanish word for pumpkin or wild gourd (source: City of Calabasas). Wherever the name came from by April you can call Calabasas "the place where polystyrene won't fly" or "no pumpkin pie to go in styrofoam" because a ban on polystyrene will be in effect in this Los Angeles County city. Read about the ban here.
