    Publix grocery stores have a bin for recycling styrofoam in front of their stores. Metal straws are available online. Carry one in your purse.

    Always ask for paper at carry outs, or bring your own containers.

    I'm hearing a lot about how bad straws are for the environment, but considering that polystyrene is basically not recyclable and is a lot bigger than straws, shouldn't we be more concerned about banning styrofoam take-out trays?

    The Publix grocery stores in my area have recycling bins near the entrance where you can bring back egg cartons, meat trays, and other styrofoam containers. I bring all of mine back there weekly. I wash the meat trays before recycling them.

    Any styrofoam containers that enter our house are fair game for the spring seed starting. I use them as water-catchers. Some around here are 3-4 years old.
