This is a wonderful win for NYC and a great step forward for all of us who hate Styrofoam. What a great place to set the first ban. We think it is like the first shot heard around the world.
Clearly, large users of Styrofoam, like Dunkin Donuts, have lots of other choices. We have no doubt it is making those choices affordable that hinder their desire to change. Too bad--DD and others have a terrible, irreversible impact on our world.
At least in NYC, they will not be serving their customers medium and large coffees in Styrofoam cups.
Here's a great, wonderful start to the new year. We will also be running, over the next couple of days, stories from USA Today.
