Polystyrene foam packaging particles are a leading form of litter on our beaches and a tremendous eyesore. Polystyrene foam packaging (commonly known as Styrofoam) is causing major environmental problems by contributing to marine pollution and damaging water quality. Over the past several years, Surfrider Foundation California Chapters have been working to eradicate this source of litter in their local Chapter areas. Now 47 municipalities in California have regulated polystyrene take-out ware! Shouldn’t this good idea be taken statewide?
