Change Is Possible: US State Department to Phase Out Styrofoam from Embassy in Peru
More evidence that change is possible in our global effort to reduce single-use plastics.
On April 26, 2017, we partnered with the U.S. State Department and B-Green to screen A Plastic Ocean at the U.S. Embassy in Lima, Peru. The results? Change!
We are happy to report that after screening the film the Embassy announced that they would be announcing an initiative to phase out all styrofoam containers from their cafeteria, which translates into over 28,000 containers per year. That’s 28,000 fewer pieces of plastic-based pollution potentially making its way to our oceans!
