Friend or Foam Series on Civil Beat
Are you a reader of the local web news organization Civil Beat?
In recent months, their investigative team has worked on an awareness raising and discussion worthy series called Friend or Foam: Why do we use so much plastic foam in Hawaii? Civil Beat examines who makes plastic foam, how it impacts the environment, and how people are trying to do away with it. They also cover the policy issues behind bringing your own container.
