Baltimore public schools to use compostable lunch trays instead of styrofoam
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Baltimore City public school students will soon be eating lunch from compostable trays instead of styrofoam ones.
An initiative by the youth-led group Baltimore Beyond Plastic has worked with the city school system to make the environmentally-friendly switch.
"It’s official! @BaltCitySchools cafeterias will be making the switch from Styrofoam to compostable trays!" posted the group on Twitter Wednesday morning.
The city school system praised the action, writing: "A student-led project that led to some real change in Baltimore and City Schools. Thank you for your activism!"
Baltimore Beyond Plastic is "a youth-led, action-oriented organization dedicated to merging public health, environmental advocacy, and legislation to change the world," according to its website.
