Businesses are making the switch and getting rid of Styrofoam

Polystyrene foam containers are being banned, and some local establishments are getting ahead of that.

McClure’s Deli in Elmira plans to remove all Styrofoam used in their business.

Barbara McClure, owner of the deli, said that it would just be different packaging and if it’s better for the environment, the .20 extra cents per container is worth it.

They would like to use cardboard and paper.
