REASONS WHY POLYSTYRENE FOAM IS BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT AND HUMAN HEALTH.

1. Toxic chemicals leach out of these products into the food that they contain. These chemicals threaten human health and reproductive systems.


2. These products are made with petroleum, a non-sustainable, heavily polluting and disappearing commodity.
