What’s so bad about styrofoam?
Styrofoam takes many human lifetimes to biodegrade; actual reports vary from 500 to 5,000 years or more. When it is incinerated it turns into airborne toxic ash.
Styrofoam leaches into food when it gets wet. The residues are stored in fatty tissue in your body. Styrofoam is linked to fatigue, nervousness, difficulty sleeping, abnormalities in blood, and carcinogenic effects.
Styrofoam residue contaminates our water supply and environment, whether it is disposed of responsibly or not.
