Why is polystyrene bad? Have your pick:
· It is a potential human carcinogen
· It leaches into the food and drink that it contains, yes, your coffee and your chicken dinner
· As far as it can be determined, it is non-biodegradable
· But it breaks easily, making it super easy for animals to eat and super difficult for humans to remove from the environment
· Its manufacturing process releases toxic waste
· Even in a landfill, it can still leak and pollute
So, what are we waiting for? Let’s ban it from our lives and ask others to do the same!
