Our school is considering abolishing Styrofoam, but the CFO would like some research to back up the substantial cost difference between the two products. Some of the info I have obtained from cursory searches I have performed seems to indicate that neither product really breaks down, and it costs much more in terms of fossil fuels and therefore carbon footprints to manufacture the paper. Just wondering if you have any info you can share on the subject?
Thank you very much for your time.
