For too long, we have been wasteful and mindless in our use of natural resources. Maryland is ready for positive change. Sign the Styrofoam Ban Petition here.
Styrofoam/Expanded Polystyrene (EPS), is a widely-used product derived from petrochemicals. Its production uses non-renewable resources and contributes to atmospheric pollution. Styrofoam never breaks down, but breaks up into increasingly small particles that absorb toxics due to their carbon-based makeup. Fish and wildlife consume the pieces mistaking it for food. This bio-accumulation of toxicity is a risk to the food chain. In other words, this foam contributes to “a wasteland.”
“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in a wasteland.” Isaiah 43: 16-21.
