Chamber Reacts to Plastic Proposal

March 7, 2024
• Greg Reibman, president of the Charles River Regional Chamber, explains how banning plastic water bottles could negatively affect Needham businesses.

At this year’s town meeting, a citizen’s petition will aim to further remove plastic and styrofoam waste from Needham. One part of that proposal has raised concerns within the business community, which has the Charles River Regional Chamber speaking out. Municipal Producer Yuxiao Yuan returns to the subject to speak with the organization’s president, Greg Riebman, for a look at what lies at the heart of those concerns, and what he is hoping the proponents will consider.
