Instructions

Put in the landfill bin.

Alternatives

Buy second hand and/or local instead of online. When you do buy online, group your purchases, don't opt for extra-fast shipping, and request less and recyclable packaging. After you receive your purchase, try to reuse the packaging again before disposal.

Facts

Styrofoam is the packaging with the worst environmental footprint mainly because it's not compostable or recyclable.
