A. Give yourself a "D". Plastic foam (polystyrene) is harmful
to the environment when manufactured and is generally not recyclable. Add a plus
if you reuse the trays for craft projects. Go back to top.
B. Give yourself a "B". Paper is more earth-friendly to discard
than plastic. Go back to top.
C. Give yourself a "C". Upgrade that to a "B" if tin cans
are accepted at your local recycling center. Go back to top.
D. Give yourself a "D" if the meal comes in a microwaveable
tray made of plastic or a paper/plastic combination. Give yourself a "C" if it
comes on an aluminum tray which can be brought to your local recycling center.
Go back to top.
E. Give yourself a "B+" for saving on packaging. Way to go
if you eat meat.
I don't give "A's" for meat choices because raising animals for food consumes
too many of the Earth's natural resources. And as for you people eating
turkeys (gulp! sob!)... words fail me!
