During the morning's press conference, City Council Members Brewer and Lander introduced Resolution 1313-2012 calling to make school food healthier. The resolution includes the line:
"Whereas, The Roadmap also calls for reducing the food and packaging waste stream through more effective recycling, composting, and by working towards the elimination of polystyrene foam trays;"
Please call, email and visit the office of your city council member. Ask them to support this important resolution, 1313-2012. Be certain to tell your City Council Member that you want polystyrene lunch trays eliminated from all NYC DoE school cafeterias.
This is very important time to gain citywide support for waste reduction!
