You Have Selected Styrofoam: #6 PS

If you lined up all the polystyrene (Styrofoam) cups made in just one day, they would more than circle the entire planet. Try using a reusable cup whenever possible. Many packing/shipping services will accept packing “peanuts,” cardboard moving boxes, Styrofoam sheets and/or blocks and bubble wrap for reuse. Please call to verify.
