Choose wildlife over waste

Each year, Americans throw away millions of foam cups and take-out containers. Too often, this pollution ends up in our waterways, and eventually the ocean, where it can harm or even kill birds and marine animals such as turtles and whales.

Nothing we use for a few minutes should pollute our environment for hundreds of years. Tell your state representative to cosponsor House Bill 627 -- a ban on one of the worst types of plastic pollution: polystyrene foam cups and containers.
