Another Great Idea from California

From MontereyHerald.com: Styrofoam ‘to go’ boxes may go away if lawmakers follow green promotion

Beach cleanup efforts conducted within the last year by the Surfrider Foundation demonstrate that polystyrene makes up a significant portion of litter. A cleanup last February at Marina State Beach netted 329 pieces of polystyrene and plastic. About six weeks later, 425 pieces were picked up at the same location.

“And that’s in two hours of work,” said Ximena Waissbluth of the foundation.

I’m sure that there is lots of this material in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
