Eliminated Styrofoam

Styrofoam is the trademark name for products made from closed-cell extruded polystyrene, which is non-biodegradable and hazardous to the health of humans and animals.

Why this Matters

For My Organization

Eliminating Styrofoam is a simple step that carries significant benefits for the environment and our health. Increasingly, cities are making the use of Styrofoam illegal.

For New Orleans

All communities benefit from eliminating Styrofoam as this reduces waste and exposure to hazardous materials.
