Support the NYC Styrofoam Ban by Using Recycled Paper Products
Boooo Styrofoam! Boooooo! Support the NYC Styrofoam ban!
New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg’s boos are heard loud and clear, as he is pushing to ban Styrofoam (polystyrene) in an attempt to make the city greener.
“One product that is virtually impossible to recycle and never bio-degrades is Styrofoam,” Bloomberg said. “Something that we know is environmentally destructive and that may be hazardous to our health, that is costing taxpayers money and that we can easily do without, and is something that should go the way of lead paint.”
Couldn’t agree more, Mike. About 20,000 tons of Styrofoam enter the city’s waste stream each year, which can add $400,000 to the cost of recycling because it needs to be removed from the recycling stream. Who wants to pay for that? It is a ridiculous waste of money that is entirely avoidable.
