Skip the Styrofoam

styrofoamTakeOutWe see polystyrene (commonly known as styrofoam) all the time when we get carry-out,
but the plates and cups are all too common at Ramadan iftars, too.

Your masjid probably provides styrofoam carry-out containers for you to bring home leftovers from the iftar.

You’ll likely let that delicious food sit in the styrofoam container during tarawih prayer, put it in the fridge over night, then heat it up in the microwave for sahoor.

STOP THAT!

Here are three excellent reasons to skip the styrofoam:

  1. Polystyrene is made from petroleum which is a non-renewable resource.
  2. Polystyrene takes eons to break down in the environment.
  3. Polystyrene can release potentially toxic products, especially when heated.

Make the habit this Ramadan of not using whatever is available, and then mindfully choose reusable and/or recyclable products that are good for the environment and your health.
