Ban the usage of Polystyrene containers in Trinidad and Tobago

Styrofoam, also known as Polystyrene, a commonly used product in Trinidad and Tobago has many detrimental impacts to to our health and the environment. Especially when heated, toxic chemicals can seep out of it contaminating our food and can result in negative impacts on human health. Furthermore, Styrofoam is often discarded as litter, polluting our streets, oceans and bays, takes hundreds of years to decompose, and is known to break into small pieces choking animals.
Other smaller islands have made the necessary steps towards implementing policies to ban these harmful products from being used.
