Every day we use hundreds of styrofoam trays, they fill up landfills and do not decompose for about 1 million years! We purpose to using reusable plastic trays and stop filling landfills with our trays.
The reason why
The reason why we want plastic trays instead of styrofoam trays is because each styrofoam tray costs $0.04 . Then after we are done with lunch we throw the whole tray away. If we had plastic trays we would only have to buy the trays once. Then after your done you can just wash the tray and use it another time. This is a good way to save money and not fill landfills with our styrofoam trays.
