Public Relations Officer of the Dominica Solid Waste Management Corporation (DSWMC), Jeno Jacob, announces an upcoming campaign event in October dubbed “Bring your own plate day”.
This is to raise awareness of the dangers of Styrofoam containers.
In recent times, Styrofoam containers have been proven by experts to contain a human carcinogen Styrene – a substance that is an agent directly involved in causing cancer.
According to Jacob, when hot food is placed into Styrofoam containers, styrene leeches into the food which, if consumed by humans has serious consequences in the future.
