The following is from the online petition asking Publix Supermarkets to quit using Styrofoam packaging. The message has quickly spread online. Publix is located in the Southeast United States, primarily Florida. They have a popular product line, “Greenwise” which promotes healthy living.
“As loyal Publix customers, we urge you to discontinue the use of all Styrofoam packaging—especially the Styrofoam trays still used by Publix in packaging vegetables—and switch to sustainable, or at a minimum, recyclable packaging. We recognize the positive measures Publix has taken to date to help protect the environment and urge you to take this important additional step.”
