No Polystyrene Pledge for Individuals

To be delivered to Young Activist Club

Petition Statement

I pledge to try to avoid use of polystyrene for foodservice ware such as cups, plates, take-out containers, and cutlery. I recognize that polystyrene – resin code #6 – is virtually nonrecyclable, nonreusable, and noncompostable and that it is made from styrene, a known neurotoxicant and reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen. As an alternative, I will seek to use reusable or compostable plates, containers, cups, and cutlery.

Petition Background

"Be the change you want to see in the world" – Ghandi

Please sign this pledge to go polystyrene-free for your foodservice ware use. Polystyrene (plastic resin #6 code, aka styrofoam) is made from styrene, a dangerous chemical. It should not be used for cups, plates, forks, and take-out containers. Please note that styrofoam is just one form of polystyrene. Polystyrene can also be a clear plastic as well as colored. Look for the resin #6 code!
