Move to Styrofoam not earth-friendly
Government has been stressing the need for all of us to lessen our impact on the environment.
Its advice to reduce, recycle and reuse has been advertised extensively.
I live in Greenfield Estates in Brocklehurst. Ours is a seniors’ apartment building that provides one meal a day.
In the past, if any of us wanted to take our meals, or a portion of our meals, to our apartment, we brought our own containers to the dining room.
Recently, our manager was told by Interior Health Authority staff that disposable Styrofoam containers must be provided to us to take our meals back to our apartments.
Styrofoam containers are not reusable, are not biodegradable and increase volume in our landfills.
