Cooler Foam Alternatives
Now more than ever, it is clear that expanded polystyrene foam (EPS), also known as Styrofoam®, is a primary source of pollution. It is accumulating in in oceans where it is mistaken by many animals as food, around cities and roads, and in landfills. EPS is made from the monomer styrene, which is associated with a number of negative, serious human health effects. Take a look at the Clean Water Action California EPS Fact Sheet for more information.
There are a number of alternatives that exist, including biodegradable fungi replacements, and options for nearly every packaging need.
