This petition goes out to all restaurants still using styrofoam, and any disposable, doggy bags, as well as the individuals who still accept them.  It needs to stop, and there is an easy way to do this.  Take your own reusuable container.  If enough people do this we create an incentive for the restuarants to offer an incentive back to us.

This is an easy way to help the environment.  The idea is simple bring your own reusable containers as doggy bags rather than taking the disposable ones provided by restaurants. This initiative helps reduce waste, especially the use of non-biodegradable styrofoam.  If individuals work together we can create a neccessary and important change.

      Whenever I go visit my childhood home, Morehead City, NC I am appalled by the amount of styrofoam used. I never see it being used on the west coast! Come on southeast... get it together!

      The syrofoam takeout containers can't be recycled in my area. I'd prefer to bring my own.
