WTF? Styrofoam back in use in Congress

Ok, so the compostable cutlery melted in the hot soup but not enough in the compost pile (issues we had here in Vermont), but to go back to plastic knives and STYROFOAM?? Really?? How about this novel idea... washable plates, cups, and silverware? Create a job or two, cut down on waste, and in the end you'll save money and face.

Here at Champlain a senior graphic design student, Melissa Kennedy, is designing a new campaign called "Sort it Out". The idea is to raise awareness about taking the few seconds to sort your waste into compost, recycling, and trash. Stay tuned for more!
