  1. You mean it only took this Council three years to ban polystyreen containers after BW suggested it?

    Boy, they certainly jump when he says!

  2. It’s about time. Some stores already use sturdy cardboard food containers, these can go right into the compost bin when we are done. Others use so much styrofoam they could supply a model airplane factory. This will prevent a lot of waste from going to the landfill and moldering for centuries.
