Styrofoam To Plastic

AH, PB, NB Logical Plan Project

Styrofoam Lunch Trays

Styrofoam lunch trays are used by schools all over the country. In 2009, the United States wasted 13 million tons plastic from containers and packaging and 7 million tons of nondurable waste from plates, cups and lunch trays. This pollutes the environment and animals; this needs to be changed.

Reasoning and Benefits

We chose this change because our resources are wasted every day when people purchase their lunches and throw their unused trays away.


It will benefit West because we are changing styrofoam into reusable plastic trays which will save us money from constantly purchasing styrofoam ones. With the styrofoam trays however, we can send them to be recycled in the necessary specialized facilities.

In conclusion, we have a short video to show of the impact recycling styrofoam can have on a single community.
