Say nah to Styrofoam! I know its hard but try to take the time to eat at whichever dinning hall you pick to avoid using Styrofoam.
Tech has made some long standing movements against Styrofoam so why not read up on why. Here is an article from the Collegiate Times documenting the Environmental Coalition’s effort to make our dinning halls more environmental friendly. If this article is from 2008 I like to hope we have made some progress.
Also I am happy to say that Virginia Tech is listed as one of the many projects of the Nationwide Foam Recycling (NFR) site. The site states it has recycled over 525 million pounds of foam since 1990, quite the number to brag about. From specifically Virginia Tech they claim that 46,200 lbs. of foam has been recycled! The site goes into their recycling process and it really quite interesting. Check it out.
