We as consumers have an important part to play in protecting our environment from the continued growth of our landfills. Managing waste created by over 7 billion people is quite the challenge. Recycling programs are one way to deal with waste yet there are non-biodegradable materials not typically included in recycling programs. In partnership with recycling programs, we must also focus on reducing demand of materials not easily recyclable. Expanded polystyrene (EPS), commonly referred to as Styrofoam, when used for foodservice containers is one of these materials.
