Today I read some good news for the environment, which is a rare occurrence. New York City will prohibit the single the use of Expandable Polystyrene Foam (EPS) packaging in six months’ time. Some 25 billion coffee cups made from EPS are used every year in the USA. There are other products that use EPS – fresh fruit trays, food containers, packaging products and none of these will be sold in the Big Apple in the New Year.
It is impossible to recycle EPS.
