Conscious Consumers: Lets get rid of Polystyrene in Colorado!

Alexandra Brower

Where
Boulder, Colorado

We want to see people foster and develop healthy consumer and waste habits, as well as cultural responses that benefit the environment and support petitions like mine.

Approaching zero waste is a matter of changing the way our culture thinks about waste, use and reuse.

We would like to see restaurants be required to use recyclable containers or compostable take out containers.

We want to get people to understand their consumer purchasing power and that the waste materials, such as polystyrene, end of in landfills and contribute to the segregation of ecosystems, the environment and is powerful in determining the success of policies which we hope to encourage.

We need both a proactive government and committed citizens to make this goal achievable.
