American Samoa

American Samoa’s government has passed a bill that will prohibit the use of polystyrene foam containers, with fines of up to US$1000 for its importing, sale, and use. In 2019, a bill was drafted to outlaw all styrofoam products but it failed to gain traction. Importers and sellers of polystyrene foam products will have six months to sell any stock. Exempted from the proposed ban are imported pre-packed food and trays used for raw meat, poultry, fish, or frozen food.
