Rise Above Foam

by Bill Hickman

What lightweight single-use plastic is typically used for under ten minutes and can easily break into many pieces if littered?  If you guessed expanded polystyrene foam, you are correct!  These small pieces of foam run the risk of harming wildlife that mistake it for food. Even if someone has the inclination to recycle the expanded polystyrene foam, most curbside recyclers will not accept it.
