What Are Compost Able Food Ware
These are uncoated paper
products, coated paper products, and some "bio-plastics"
(made from corn, potato, and other plant materials).
What's Wrong with Polystyrene
Made from crude oil, it is
non-renewable, non-biodegradable, and virtually
non-recyclable. It ends up in landfills, waterways or
the ocean. It breaks down into smaller and smaller
pieces which are often mistaken for food and ingested by
marine mammals, birds, and fish. Medical evidence also
suggests that chemicals in poly-styrene foam are
carcinogenic and may leach into food or drink.
Alternatives to Polystyrene Foam?
Uncoated paper, coated paper,
cardboard, other plastics, aluminum foil food service
ware, and "bio-plastics".
