As usual ... an incredible group with wonderful posts! Thanks to all of you!
Okay ... are you ready? Let's get busy:
For one week, say "NO" to polystyrene foam (commonly known as Styrofoam). This means ... don't buy it (no Styrofoam coolers, cups or toys), don't use it and don't buy anything that comes in it. At restaurants, should you have leftover food to take home, ask the server to put it in something other than Styrofoam. At fast-food establishments, refuse to buy any products which come in it. Just Say No!
If your life is already Styrofoam free, then write a post about why Styrofoam is so bad for the environment.
That's it for this week!
WE'RE CHANGING THE WORLD ... ONE CHALLENGE AT A TIME!
