The end is near for polystyrene foam food packaging. Cities and counties across the country have implemented unilateral bans, but the game changed last week: New York City Mayor, Bill De Blasio, announced that Styrofoam packaging and drink containers will be banned starting July 1.

NEW YORK – A potential ban on plastic foam food containers in a city that thrives on takeout proved a piping-hot topic among lawmakers Monday, as they debated the material’s pros, cons and prospects for recycling.
An environmental bane to some, a foodservice staple to others, the familiar foam to-go cups, plates and cartons already are prohibited in San Francisco and dozens of other U.S. cities and could be on their way out in New York.
