Simple Thing to do to save the Earth for Earth Day!

In honor of Earth Day this week I am suggesting that we tell companies that use Styrofoam to stop. It is bad for our health and bad for the environment. If you want more details on why we should not use styrofoam click here to see my post Why Styrofoam is Bad.

ACTION: This week Tweet the companies below and tell them stop using styrofoam us the hashtag #nostyro If you are not on twitter go to their Facebook page or email them using their customer feedback pages (links listed below)

Since I wrote that post there have been TONS of people who have gone to the Dunkin Donuts website to leave a comment asking them to stop using styrofoam. Here are some other companies that I have seen using styrofoam. If you know of any others leave me comment, email me at greenforu (at) hotmail (dot) com, or tweet me @greenforu and I will add a link to their comment page.
