Business Polystyrene Free Pledge

We are asking businesses to sign our pledge to go polystyrene free. This pledge is to help make our community safer and healthier. After businesses sign the pledge, they get a sticker to put on their window. Below is a copy of the pledge.

Takoma Park No Styrofoam Food Service Ware Pledge for Businesses

On behalf of my business, we pledge to not use polystyrene foodservice ware for anything in our restaurant/store/business. We recognize that polystyrene – resin code #6 – is virtually nonrecyclable, nonreusable, and noncompostable and that it is made from styrene, a known neurotoxicant and reasonably anticipated to be a human carcinogen. As an alternative, my business will seek to use reusable or compostable plates, containers, cups, and silver ware to serve our food or drinks.

I sign this on behalf of my business because I want to do good for our community, our customers, and our environment.

We now have an online option. Sign the Pledge Online.
