Anyone who has been following along over here for any amount of time knows that I am NOT a major fan of Styrofoam (aka polystyrene). In fact, I have my children well versed to know that "evil" and "styrofoam" are two words that are locked together. It's an environmental and health nightmare:
Good news earlier this month comes out of San Francisco. Starting 2017, San Francisco becomes the first city to ban polystryrene as part of their 2020 Zero Waste Goal. Let's all raise our non-Styrofoam glass to toast this great eco-win!
To learn more about the polystyrene ban, check out this article from LiveScience and watch the video below.
