I am asking this because currently I am working at a summer camp who uses
styrofoam cups and I am trying to convince the director to get paper cups. I
know styrofoam takes about 500 years to break down, but the director wants to
make sure it is a worthy cause to invest in paper cups. I hope to hear from you
and thank you! ~Kelly
