University of Hawaii Ban on EPS Foam
UH Manoa Bans EPS Foam at on-campus dining locations
In the Spring of 2013, a campaign was launched to ban the use of EPS foam at on-campus dining locations. Through a petition campaign and collaboration with students, faculty, staff and administration UH Manoa is now in the process of going foam-free. The apprived policy encourages the use of resuable and compostable products and its bans EPS foam from being used by new vendors of existing vendors renewing their contracts. This is a great victory for the sustainability movement at UH Manoa.
To see the official policy passed in April 2013.
