I gave up styrofoam containers a long time ago. I only eat my takeout food from the skulls of baby harp seals.

I thought we did that with the demise of the Mc D.L.T.

I rarely see those containers. It's either paper and foil or clear plastic. The clear plastic has the advantage of seeing what's inside the container and reminding you to eat your leftovers.

mrshowrules: Banning drink sizes was the dumbest farking thing ever but banning materials that end up in landfills may have merit.


Styrofoam doesnt have to end up in landfills.  It burns fairly readily.

Destructor: Offer a base $1000 reward for clear photographic evidence of some nitwit polluting leading to a conviction. It might be more if it's a serious case of dumping (for example). You can only claim the reward once or twice a year (attempt to stop fakers). If you're caught faking to get a reward, you get a massive fine and real jail time.

Someone convicted of the crime pays at least $2k + work community service in the form of litter pickup for a year


each winter hobo teams could trade off who litters and who takes the pictures then the convicted gets a place to sleep and the photog can rent a hovel for the winter months.

You know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna get myself a 1967 Cadaliac Eldarado Convertable, Hot Pink! With whale skin hub caps, An all leather cow interior, And big brown baby seal eyes for headlights. YEAH! And I'm gonna drive around in that baby, At 115 miles per hour, Getting one mile per gallon, Sucking down quarter pounder cheeseburgers from McDonalds in the old-fasioned non-biodegradable styrafoam containers. And when I'm done sucking down those grease ball burgers, I'm gonna wipe my mouth in the American flag, And then I'm gonna toss the styrafoam containers right out the side,

jjorsett: ZAZ: In my area they're going after plastic bags because that's the progressive thing to do. The supermarkets already recycle bags (Shaws) or use paper (Trader Joe's). Little stores would be exempt. Sometimes even a part time legislative body has too much time on its hands.

Remember when plastic bags were the answer because they saved trees? Why DOES TRADER JOE'S HATE TREES?


Plastic bags was a greenwashing campaign by the petroleum industry to sell more petroleum products.

I'm just making that up but it sounds good right?

mafiageek1980: Eh, they've banned plastic shopping bags here in Austin, so this is nothing.


Hilarious to see the Republican controlled Legislature try to get the ban overturned because some dipshiat from Yoakum was affronted, and because FREEDUMB.

Good... I hate foam cups. Either the straw pokes a hole in the side and it leaks, the lid won't stay on, or you brush something against it(Sometimes another cup) and the sound send me into fits. Ban 'em all!!

Also, in situations like this, I can't understand why the 'container industry' gives a fark. They make more than the foam cups, and if it's more expensive for the businesses, since the foam isn't available, they pay more or don't sell drinks. The container industry should see this as a push at worst and an increase in profits at the best.

That is called reuse.  Instead of just throwing them away we can use them for entertainment and warmth on a bonfire.  Reuse is good for the environment.
