Lets move those deck chairs around
I do not want to sound discouraging, but banning Styrofoam containers feels like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic. The Mercury News did do a Pro/Con list for getting rid of Styrofoam. The real problem I worry about is not addressed by the list. I worry about how much energy it takes to make each kind of containers. If global warming is the most important environmental issues for us to address, how much energy it takes to make containers is more important than if it degrades or not. There is no two ways around it.
