Waste foam seriously affects the health of wild animals and marine life. As for the importance of recycling foam, it goes without saying. The following are the different voices from different continents.
People in Albany, California said: “foam is notorious as a pollutant. It breaks down into smaller, non-biodegradable fragments, which are ingested by marine life and other wild animals, thereby harming or killing them.”
Aliso Viejo, California issued a decree: “polystyrene, a kind of foam substance whose waste poses a risk to the fragile ecological balance, because marine and terrestrial wildlife often die from ingestion of polystyrene products. Since foam remains in the ecosystem for a long time, this risk may happen repeatedly.”
The official in Andover, Massachusetts announced: “foam is a common environmental pollutant. It can break into small pieces so that marine life and birds cannot distinguish whether it is rubbish or food. If they ingested foam waste, it would affect their digestive tract and eventually leads to death.
Brisbane, California showed that if foam containers enter waterways and bodies of water, they will have an adverse effect on marine life. In contrast, reuse or recycle foam food servers can reduce waste and protect natural resources.”
Laguna Beach, California: “Marine animals and birds often confuse foam as a food source. Ingestion of such material usually leads to reduced appetite and nutrient absorption and may die from the hunger of birds and marine animals.”
