Styrofoam containers are harmful to humans, animals and the environment. Scientific research has demonstrated that the toxic chemicals (Benzene and Styrene) in Styrofoam (polystyrene) leach into our food (this is especially true with hot drinks and foods and red wine) where they act as neurotoxins adversely affecting the brain and nervous system. Additionally, Styrofoam cannot be recycled and is accumulating in landfills where it breaks down leaving its toxic chemicals to harm wildlife, marine life and the environment.
Now one state has decided to take action to reduce the amount of Styrofoam on the planet. Maine has just become the first U.S. state to officially ban Styrofoam containers outright.
