Styrofoam for takeout food - many restaurants use for takeout?
Not sustainable indeed..
- Once used for food storage these containers are very hard to recycle (if at all). All food must be scraped off and all grease rinsed.. not always possible. Almost every time these takeout containers get tossed away in the garbage. According to some studies Styrofoam takes 500 years to decompose
It's good to see cities going green every year and laws to ban Styrofoam containers is in place across the world.
