Stop the usage of Styrofoam trays for school lunches

This petition had 34 supporters

My name is Happy Hannah and I am 13 years old. I would like to inform you about a horrible thing that takes away millions of life every year, is mass-manufactured, and you see it everyday. What is it called? What could be so horrible, yet so well known? Styrofoam. Styrofoam is a substance that is not reycleable, and is used throughout the world in numerous places because it is cheap and easy to make. For grade students, one of the most common places you find Styrofoam is their lunch tray. These trays just build up waste all over the planet. There is even a horrible mass of trash the size of Texas, in the ocean,which is composed of Styrofoam and similar things that will take forever to go "away."Even though these trays are cheap, it will take thousands of years for them to decompose. This horrible stuff even releases chemicals into your food. YUCK! So, help me stop this production of world destruction! Instead, let's aim for post consumer trays or ones you can wash yourself. The possibilities are endless.
Thank you,
Happy Hannah
