Help Is Available To Become Plastic Foam Free

We all want to be part of the solution the land fills and our earth is facing and become Plastic Foam Free….but aren’t quite sure what product to try in a world where things are new and untried.  How will it all work? You are in luck! United Churches is now able to partner with interested congregations and small businesses to provide some replacement cups and clam-shell-to-go-containers at no cost to you, to help you discover what will work best for you.

Thanks to an UMCOR (United Methodist Committee On Relief) Grant United Churches will purchase these materials soon. To apply to be part of this free program please fill out the short application.  Click here for application

God calls us to be responsible stewards of God’s creation. One of the most polluting substances we have in our communities is plastic foam, better known by the brand name Styrofoam®. Plastic foam takes anywhere from decades to millennia to decompose, and it releases toxic chemicals as it breaks down. Unfortunately, plastic foam is very common – in our trash, landfills, streets, and even our beloved rivers and streams. Such pollution sickens our natural world and breaks God’s heart. Thank you for caring!
