The problem with humans is that we invent things, but it is only after these things become pollutants that we realize that they are extremely harmful to the environment. Both plastic and styrofoam qualify for this tag, and, needless to say, both are extremely harmful to both the humans and the environment. In fact, many countries are banning both of them. However, the question that we need to ask ourselves. Is it too late? There’s already millions of tonnes of styrofoam lying there in landfills, which could lead to something serious in the future. Right now, the best thing we can do is eliminate styrofoam completely from our lives and use eco-friendly substitutes for styrofoam packaging and insulation.
