Today's theme is Styrofoam.
Styrofoam is terrible! It takes more than 5,000 years to biodegrade! I was so upset today because at school we had a tornado warning, so we had indoor recess and lunch in our classrooms. Hot lunch is served on Styrofoam plates that are normally recycled. Well, since we were in our classrooms and not the cafeteria, the platters were not recycled! Everyone just threw them away without a second glance. I had to close my eyes and look away to even muster up enough courage to throw it away. To top it all off, we went to a local ice cream store after school for a snack. Unfortunately, they serve the ice cream in MORE Styrofoam! I feel so guilty. Looking back on it I could have at least washed the bowl and brought it back next time we went for ice cream.
