Help eliminate polystyrene (aka,“Styrofoam”)
food and beverage containers in Colorado!
Coloradans throw away roughly 1 million plastic foam cups every day. Polystyrene takes 500 or more years to break down in the environment and some never does, which means items we use once often pollute our environment for centuries because this material is not widely recyclable. Polystyrene, manufactured with fossil fuels and known toxic chemicals, is a threat to wildlife and human health and safety.
It’s time Colorado be a leader and ban polystyrene food and beverage to-go containers.
