In a single year, Americans throw out 25 billion polystyrene foam cups, some of which became part of the 8 million tons of plastic dumped in our waterways every year.
Polystyrene foam products are made with petroleum and a host of other highly polluting ingredients. They're essentially non-recyclable, and they can even leach toxic chemicals into our food and drink. Less than 3% of polystyrene foam is ever recycled.
We're calling on your governor to take bold action and ban single-use polystyrene foam products once and for all. Will you join us in calling for a zero-waste future?
