Certification Tiers

Plastic Free Key West is designed as a three-tier annual certification based upon the progressive level of single-use plastic elimination:

  • Tier One: Business pledges to remove one or more eligible single-use plastic products* during the first calendar year of partnership, or the business has already removed one single-use plastic
  • Tier Two: The business has removed two or more single-use plastic products*
  • Tier Three: Business is 100% single-use plastics-free

* Excluding single-use plastics currently prohibited by local ordinance.  In Key West, the restriction of plastic straws would apply.
