Help Ban Polystyrene Foam Containers In Nyc!

New York City residents throw out about 28,000 tons of polystyrene every year — that's millions of white foam clamshell "to go" containers, coffee cups and food trays. Polystyrene foam ends up littering our streets, parks, beaches and waterways, threatening fish and other wildlife. There’s no practical way to recycle it, and it will never biodegrade. Urge New York City officials to solve this problem and make New York a cleaner, greener place by voting on a bill that would ban polystyrene food and beverage containers citywide.
