EPS Foam from cups and to-go containers is one of the biggest sources of litter pollution in our streams and rivers, and that foam can cause damage for centuries.
Using reusable dishware saves businesses money overtime, they use far less energy over their lifetime, and the chances of them polluting our waters is much lower than disposable counterparts.
Parking lots are impermeable surfaces that need to be cleaned regularly to decrease the stormwater runoff that carries litter, debris, sediment, and chemicals into storm drains.
Food wrappers, containers, napkins and straws consistently rank at the top of litter retrieved in community and coast litter pickups. Many of these items can be reduced.
Show your support for the campaign by becoming a Create a Clean Water Future Partner and raise awareness about reducing stormwater runoff and the pollution that it carries.
The challenge is to stop today's pollution at the source. The bad news is—WE are the source. The good news is—WE have the power to fix it. DON'T BE TRASHY!
