We Need CT to Ban Polystyrene

Each year, Americans throw away millions of foam cups and take-out containers. Too often, this pollution ends up in our oceans and rivers, where it can harm or even kill birds, fish, and other wildlife.

Something we use for a few minutes shouldn't be allowed to pollute our environment for hundreds of years. I urge you to support a ban on foam cups and take-out containers made of polystyrene to reduce pollution in our waters and protect wildlife.
