Hi guys! Styrofoam is even worse than plastic, yet so many companies are still using them. Styrofoam is a petroleum-based plastic that can’t be recycled. Styrene is a main ingredient and it’s been linked to several forms of cancer and it considered a hazardous substance.
I recently contacted Chick-fil-A about their usage of styrofoam cups. They basically said customers prefer to have their drinks cold, so they’ll be sticking to their styrofoam. BUT they are creating park benches and pens with the 2 million cups a month from their restarants.
This may sound like a lot, but given that they have 2200 stores across this country, it’s nothing.
I’ve attached the screenshots of my attempt to get answers.
It’s 2019, there is no excuse anymore.
