Say NoNo To Styro

The problems with Styrofoam.

The Problem

Styrofoam is a major problem in the world today. It is very bad for people and the environment. Any time that food and drinks are stored in any styrofoam like container, toxins are slowly released into the food. When people are done with styrofoam materials, the materials cannot be recycled. Instead, the waste is placed in landfills, where it takes hundreds of years to decompose.

How Styrofoam is made.

Styrofoam is made from plastic pellets. Manufacturers heat the pellets , causing them to expand to 40 or 50 times their original size. The styrofoam is then cut to size.

The Solution

While styrofoam can not be recycled, paper can. If people use paper instead of plastic, they will get the same performance from something that is much safer for our world!
