We throw away billions of tons of polystyrene foam every year, the vast majority of which can’t be recycled. Polystyrene can end up in oceans and harm or kill wildlife that mistake it for food.

When more sustainable alternatives exist, we shouldn’t continue using polystyrene foam. Tell your governor to ban single-use plastic foam.
