Hello Beth -- I am wondering if you have any resources to point us to, that provides some good information like a card or something we could present to restaurant managers that are still using styrofoam in particular?  If you don't, I may create one --but I thought I would ask first.  Thx!

Not sure if you will see this, but also thank you for all the great information and for your book!

@Sirisha Kuchibhotla -- sorry to hear of what is happening there in India, it is not healthy to be breathing that air at night!  I wonder if your city's leaders would be open to a municipal composting facility of some kind - with composting, it need not be an expensive facility, just appropriately done. People could bring their compostable material in reusable buckets.  That is the only thing I can think of that might help -- from my travels I know that recycling is a problem in many parts of the world (including in the u.s.a. where it is very commonly put in landfills because it is cheaper for companies to buy new raw material) - and it (recycling) does require expensive facilities. Somehow there needs to be education and reducing our dependency on plastic - this is true in every single country. Our grandparents never had it, so there has to be a way.  good luck to you!
