Our government has been stressing the need for all of us to lessen our impact on the environment. Their advice to reduce, recycle and reuse has been advertised extensively to via television, etc.
I live in Greenfield Place in Brocklehurst. Ours is a seniors’ apartment building that provides one meal a day.
In the past, if any of us wanted to take our meals or a portion of our meals to our apartment, we brought our own containers to the dining room.
Recently, our managers were told by Interior Health that disposable Styrofoam containers must be provided to us to take our meals back to our apartments.
Styrofoam containers are not reusable. They are not biodegradable and they increase volume in our landfills.
