Out There

a lunch tray victory!

Posted in Uncategorized by Pete on July 16, 2009

Remember this post?  LKSD recently voted to get rid of the styrofoam trays and go with “disposable, biodegradable, and compostable lunch trays are made from 100% “bagasse”. Bagasse is the residual sugarcane fiber remaining after extraction of juice from the sugarcane.” (quoting from the Delta Discovery, click here and scroll down to 4-29-09 article).  So that’s good news, albeit about 20 years overdue.

In addition, Bethel City Council has completely banned all plastic sacks and styrofoam trays from local businesses.  I know I’m sounding like a raving environmentalist, but if you could see the amount of plastic littering the tundra you would understand.
