Mr. President, the following bill has passed the Senate and awaits your decision:

The Earth-friendly Packaging Act

1. In order to lead the way to a cleaner and healthier future for all life in our nation, and to demonstrate the use of more environmentally sustainable alternatives, the Federal Government of Atlasia commits to phase out its use of polystyrene foam packaging materials by one year from the passage of this act.  These materials will be replaced by materials which do not create debris ingestible by wildlife and which are not otherwise harmful to waterways or to the health of animals or humans.

2. Departments may reuse polystyrene foam for internal or interdepartmental use but will not purchase new polystyrene materials.  Departments will make efforts to provide for recycling of polystyrene and other plastics.

3. Food services which operate in federal buildings, or in national parks or other federal designated protected areas, shall not use polystyrene foam in consumer food packaging.  Additionally, a goal shall be set of using 95% recyclable or reusable and 75% biodegradable packaging by one year from the passage of this act.

4. This act shall not prohibit the use of polystyrene foam in architectural or medical applications, or applications determined of unavoidable necessity, or the acquiring of polystyrene foam for these purposes; however, the development and use of more environmentally friendly materials will be strongly encouraged in all applications wherever possible.

A good bill--pretty hard to find ways to oppose this.
