StyrofoamTM cups and take-out containers were once used everywhere—but lately, more and more cities are banning the use of StyrofoamTM products at restaurants and stores. Why? Because StyrofoamTM is a public health hazard—it is bad for the environment and our health. For decades we have been creating StyrofoamTM waste in our communities. Polystyrene foam is littered more than any other waste product—despite it being only 1 percent of all waste, it makes up 10 to 40 percent of litter found in streams. Read on to learn why StyrofoamTM is harmful to our health and why we should be embracing the trend to ban it in our communities.
Expanded polystyrene foam, commonly referred to as StyrofoamTM, is a type of polystyrene (hard plastic) that is made of harmful chemicals. Polystyrene is used in the manufacture of a wide range of products, from disposable cups and containers to insulating material in housing.
Children are often more vulnerable to toxic chemicals and pollutants because of certain behaviors, such as crawling or putting things into their mouths. Their bodies are also still developing, so their ability to defend against or break down toxic chemicals is weaker. We should therefore minimize the use of products containing harmful chemicals—such as StyrofoamTM—especially around children.
What is polystyrene foam?
Polystyrene (PS) is a versatile, hard, plastic (identified by Recycling Code #6) that is manufactured when multiple molecules of styrene, a liquid plastic, are linked together. StyrofoamTM is the common term for a brand of expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam and it is used for thermal insulation (reduction of heat transfer) in objects such as disposable coffee cups, coolers, and packaging materials. Polystyrene is light weight, squeaky when rubbed, and is usually white or light green. Packing peanuts are one example of a polystyrene foam that is commonly used as cushioning for transport of fragile objects
